Courageous Conversation: Talking to Kids About Race & Racism
Thursday, May 20, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Join John Maina, father of two and Executive Director of CRASH Lancaster, and YWCA York’s Chief Child and Youth Program Officer and mother of two, Ruby Martin, as they co-facilitate a Courageous Conversation about “Talking to Kids about Race and Racism.” This conversation promises to meet the needs of parents, teachers, youth workers and others who find themselves face to face with children daily. Discuss why these conversations are so important, discover age appropriate ways to have these discussions and how to encourage empathy and perspective taking with the youth in your life. The evening will wrap up with a conversation about supporting others in this work, as we all know it takes a village.
