Parent Ed Night – Marin

PARENT ED NIGHT: Strategies for Talking to Young Children about Race and Racism,  Wed. April 24, 6:30-8:30pm
Location: Marin MPR
Speaker: Louiza Doran
Research shows that most children’s attitudes about race are formed between the ages of 3 to 5. Expressions of racial prejudice often peak at ages 4 and 5 (Aboud, 2008)· Research also shows that discussing difference helps children to appreciate diversity and recognize discrimination.
How do we foster these important conversation about race and racism (along with other isms) with our kids ?
How do we take advantage of teachable moments at home and on the playground?
Louiza Doran will facilitate an interactive workshop and discussion for AUSD elementary school parents and community members to learn tools for speaking comfortably and confidently with children about race and racial justice. We'll also include some discussion on gender and other isms. Let’s talk about real-life challenges and learn strategies to celebrate difference and empower everyone in our community.
We welcome everyone's perspective as we learn together and from each other.
