Britt Hawthorne - AuthorsLive Virtual Event Wednesday May 3rd, 1pm

Join us for an online event with Britt Hawthorne on Wednesday May 3rd at 1pm. Are you committed to building an antiracist family environment for your children? Raising antiracist children is a noble goal for any parent, caregiver, or educator, but it can be hard to know where to start. Let Britt Hawthorne—a nationally recognized teacher and advocate—be your guide. Raising Antiracist Children acts as an interactive guide for strategically incorporating the tools of inclusivity into everyday life and parenting. In her book, Hawthorne breaks down antiracist parenting into four comprehensive sections and in this webinar you will learn about:

  • Healthy bodies—Establishing a safe and body-positive home environment to combat stereotypes and create boundaries.
  • Radical minds—Encouraging children to be agents of change, accompanied by scripts for teaching advocacy, giving and taking productive feedback, and becoming a co-conspirator for change.
  • Conscious shopping—Raising awareness of how local shopping can empower or hinder a community’s ability to thrive, and teaching readers of all ages how to create shopping habits that support their values.
  • Thriving communities—Acknowledging the personal power we have to shape our schools, towns, and worlds, accompanied by exercises for instigating change.

Raising Antiracist Children is a must-have, practical guide essential for parents and caregivers everywhere.
