As parents, we share the honor and serious responsibility of teaching our children to be thoughtful, educated members of society who identify and bravely take action against the racial injustice they see around them. The nationwide protests against police violence and the suffering of Black Americans that erupted in the wake of the tragic killing of George Floyd have sparked the collective conscience. Change starts at home, with critical and ongoing conversations had and actions taken to teach our children about racial identity and racism. We have compiled the below list of resources to help your family explore systemic racism and issues of power, privilege and oppression.
