WI - Milwaukee Chapter

Event: Monthly Gathering: Talking to our kids about Anti-Racism, creating shifts

June 17, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

We are living through a transformative time. For our June virtual gathering (note date/time shift), we are focused on how to talk with our children about what’s happening in today’s world, particularly around race, racism, and anti-racism. Please REGISTER IN ADVANCE through this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIlc-Ctpz8uGNdb1u73TKfpZ1SaQbJ2zCoL. You’ll receive an email with log in details on how to join the zoom call.

There are so many events and resources online, we’d love to have you share a few of the most impactful resources you’ve found. In particular, we’d like to highlight:

  • How to talk with your children and family about racism/anti-racism
  • Being good allies at home and in the larger community
  • Supporting Black & Brown businesses
  • Doing the work to deconstruct and shift some of your own internal beliefs
  • How to sustain this momentum if/when the attention dies down

In addition to your resources, we’ll kick things off with highlights from a recent webinar attended called, “Talking with Children about Race & Racism.” We also will share some thought prompts for People of White to do their own internal work. These were created by Venice Williams, Exec Director of Alice’s Garden Urban Farm and shared at the June 4th event, “Reckoning My Own Whiteness Labyrinth Walk.”

Please join us as you can. If you cannot attend, please email us and we’ll arrange to share materials with you. Members, friends, guests…There is room for all at our table. Let’s do this work, people, and importantly, make some seismic shifts.
