RAISING WHITE KIDS IN A RACIALLY UNJUST AMERICA

We are delighted to offer an advanced Doing Our Own Work workshop featuring author, professor, and veteran white anti-racist activist Dr. Jennifer Harvey. Her book, Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust America, was published in 2017. Dr. Harvey will be joined by Allies for Change facilitators Sara Johnson and Emily Joye for a workshop offering concrete steps that white parents, family members, educators, clergy, and others can take to foster anti-racist consciousness in white children and youth.

As Dr. Harvey says in Raising White Kids:

“Race-conscious parenting is an approach that insists on noticing and naming race early and often…This approach stands in dramatic and stark contrast to color-blindness. Our children can grow into citizens, neighbors, friends, and family members able to resist, dissent, create and construct as we equip them through race-conscious nurture toward healthy white identity, today, tomorrow and throughout their lives.”

This interactive workshop will engage the content of Harvey’s book through multiple learning modalities: skill practice, large and small group dialogue, media, the arts, and individual reflection.

Enrollment is limited to 40 graduates of Doing Our Own Work: An Anti-Racism Seminar for White People.
