How to Start the Conversation about Racism

Hi everybody,

This is a very special episode of The Imagine Neighborhood. We're speaking with Dr Jasmine PhD about starting conversations in your family about racism, equity, and justice. I want to highly recommend that grown-ups listen to the episode with their kids, and you might want to listen to it in advance. We do discuss the killing of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor and you may want to adjust the way you speak about the issues with younger kids.

We have more resources available here, including some suggestions for books you can read as a family.

If you have questions for us, or Dr Jasmine, please get in touch. Let us know how we can help you and your families have these necessary conversations.

Be safe, be well, be kind.
