Create A Caring and Inclusive Space
Helping our kids to take a stand against racial injustice starts at home. Check out these kid-friendly resources you can use to tackle tough topics like racism, fairness and inclusion. Start a discussion with these prompts:
1. It’s natural to notice race and recognize other differences. Ask your child: "How are we the same? How are we different?"
2. Share a story about a time when you had to stand up for yourself because you were being treated unfairly. Start the conversation by simply asking: "How did you feel?"
3. Start a discussion around race by asking: "Do you think racism might make it harder for Black people to become important leaders? Is that fair?"
4. Think about how we can work to be more inclusive. Ask: "When we see something unfair what are ways we can stand up for others?"
