Long before the high-profile killings that led to protests in all 50 states this past spring, racial injustice was an everyday reality for many families, and it continues to be so.
To understand how we could better advocate on behalf of young children and families experiencing racial injustice, ICS began to gather stories from the parents and guardians of Black children. During this webinar, we will give an overview of the findings from our recent Racial Injustice and Young Children surveys and share stories from parents and guardians.
In this 1.5 hour webinar, we’ll also seek to address key questions. What is implicit bias and its role in racism? What do implicit bias and racism look like in the classroom? How do they manifest in society at large? How does racial injustice impact young children? What are organizations like ICS and Tri-County Cradle to Career (TCCC) doing to address these issues? How can we all best advocate for a society in which all children – including Black children and other children of color – can thrive and succeed? We look forward to sharing with you and hearing your thoughts on this important topic.
