MARCHING IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
Some of the most important activism we can do is to foster the next generation of anti-racist children.
Sex Ed and Social Justice
Support Plan for White Parents
6 week online group Zoom program
Parenting is one of the most important types of activism we do, right in our living rooms, raising children. Children’s education can play a critical role in ending racism and systemic oppression. This program is about asking questions of ourselves as parents and encouraging our children to ask questions of the world around them.
We will wrestle with the questions:
When do I talk about race with my children? What do I say? Will I traumatize my child?
How do I create my own questions for myself, my partners or community, and my children around this critical topic?
How do I prepare the next generation of white children to be anti-racist?
How can we talk about touch, consent, and sexual education with our children in a way that includes race?
6-week Zoom program
Starting Tuesday July 28th
This program is for white parents. Each week we will wrestle with one question together. This is just the beginning of the journey...each question has potentially 20 questions additionally that could come up as we unpack each question each week.
Supporting each other as parents
It is easy for us to judge each other and ourselves as parents, to critique each other rather than build each other up...and in turn we critique ourselves. In this group we will offer a contradiction to the constant judgment that parents are under and encourage parents to create and hone their own content for their children. We are here to think with you, not to criticize you.
Why sex education?
Sex education and anti-racism are two often ignored aspects of parenting for white parents, but are also the two areas that most likely will impact children of color in your child's present and future. When we connect over difficult topics like anti-racism in sex education for our children, it ripples out into other parts of our parenting plans, and benefits our anti-racism thinking for us and our family.
