How to Raise Kids to be Actively Anti-Racist

August 25, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Parents tend to avoid conversations about race with their children. Too often, parents don’t fully understand it themselves, so they struggle to talk about it with their kids. The Rev. Dr. Jennifer Harvey, award-winning author, educator, and activist, will offer guidance on how to have constructive, age-appropriate discussions with children about race and racism. This live webinar – the second in a special series on talking to children about racial issues –will be hosted by CEO Tim Allen and will include a Q&A session. Whether you’re a parent who wants to advance your family’s journey of anti-racisim activism, or an educator or caregiver looking to foster racial justice in our homes, communities, and schools, you’ll leave this conversation with the knowledge and tools you need to educate children to be empowered, active allies in the ongoing fight against systemic racism in America.

The Rev. Dr. Jennifer Harvey is a Professor of Religion at Drake University. Her work focuses on ethics and race, gender, sexuality, activism, spirituality and politics; however, her greatest passion and longtime work centers around racial justice and anti-racism. Dr. Harvey is the author of the New York Times best-selling book, Raising White Kids: Bringing up Children in a Racially Unjust America.
