Our “Equity & You” series this year explores how each of us can personally be an agent for change right where we are. We invite you to join this month’s virtual town hall, Raising Anti-Racist Children, where we will discuss developmentally appropriate strategies for teaching children about racism, empowering them with tools to recognize and call it out no matter their age, and intentionally creating opportunities to build, exercise and support inclusivity and equity in their environments.
The program included:
A conversation between Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and Dr. Eduardo Ochoa Jr. on Dr. Kendi’s newest book, How to Raise an Antiracist
An opportunity to learn about strategies and tools for engaging children in antiracism with Tanya Nixon Silberg
Moderated by Dr. Eduardo Ochoa Jr., Arkansas Site Principal Investigator of Children’s HealthWatch, pediatrician, and Vice-Chair of Diversity and Health Equity at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
Thank you to Marilyn Meyerhoff and Sam Feldman for their generous sponsorship of our ‘Equity Can’t Wait’ series.
