OEP is holding a four-week webinar series on how to raise race conscious kids. Topics will include how parents and teachers can address race, the myth of color-blindness, the role of racial scripts, and the future of racial justice.
We will use the book "Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children In A Racially Unjust America" by Jennifer Harvey to guide the discussions. However, reading the book is not required.
This webinar is a space for all community members to join in conversations about raising all kids to be race conscious, not just for people raising white kids.
We will be meeting every Thursday, 8pm-9pm ET, July 23rd through August 13, 2020.
What to expect in each session
- Personal sharing in the larger group and in breakout pairs.
- Open conversations discussing the role of parents, teachers, and other community members in raising race conscious kids.
- Discussion of issues and questions raised by Jen Harvey's book [reading the text is recommended but optional]
This webinar takes place via Zoom. You will receive the link after registering.
Two Part-Conversation: Tuesday August 18th and August 25th at 8:00 PM EST/ 5:00 PM PST
Do you want to be a greater advocate for migrants? Living in tight prison-like conditions and being separated from loved ones is not uncommon for those who end up making the journey to the USA border. Given the COVID-19 pandemic spread, the immigration detention system is even more important to discuss.
This two-part conversation will cover immigrant detention facilities and connect them to the criminal justice system. Join to become an informed ally! For more information look at the OEP-Migrant Facebook page or email email@example.com.
