Racism is a really hard thing to talk about. With anyone. But especially with your kids.

Many parents want to do the right thing, to teach their kids how to be tolerant and accepting of people that don’t look like them and may have grown up with a different experience than them. For many, it is the chance to raise their children more tolerant than they were raised, to teach their children how people should act towards their fellow man rather than how they all too often do act.

To encourage and facilitate these types of conversations, the Newton Human Rights Commission will be hosting an interactive presentation for parents, guardians, and caregivers of children ages 4-10 led by a leadership coach and racial justice consultant.
