Every 4th Tuesday of the month, join us for our Talking Race & Kids series.

At the end of July, we had a great conversation about Parenting for Equity in St. Louis after #Ferguson with our guests, Dr. Kira Hudson Banks of Raising Equity, and Laura Horwitz and Adelaide Lancaster of We Stories last week. Thanks to all of you who participated and sent in questions. To find that and previous conversations and resources in the monthly series, head to the Talking Race & Kids archives
On August 28th, we're excited to host Addressing Racial Violence with Young Children, a conversation with three child and family psychologists who wrote a children's book, Something Happened in Our Town: A Child's Story about Racial Injustice, to help families talk about racial and police violence with young children. We're very excited that all three authors will be joining us and taking  your questions. Register here to join the conversation.
