Recent research has shown that children have very complex understandings of differences and stereotypes. Far from being color-blind, most children are aware of how their own skin color is an advantage or disadvantage. They also judge their peers based on stereotypes that adults might like to believe they are unaware of. Because of this, it is important to give youth anti-bias messages, through actions and words, to actively counter what they are witnessing in the world.

In this two-day workshop (May 5th and 6th) we will explore how young people in early childhood through their teen years are socialized to practice racism and privilege. The facilitators draw from their diverse experiences to engage parents, teachers, and concerned community members in this vital work for equity.

Participants will…

  • Learn how young people see and understand race

  • Discover ways to support healthy ethnic identity development in young people

Facilitators: Caprice D. Hollins, Psy.D. & Ilsa Govan, M.A.
