Webinar: Talking with Your Adopted Kids about Racism

Adoption and Culture Webinar Series

Presented by Post Adoption Support Services

Monday, June 29, from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm via Zoom

Research shows that children can absorb the effects of racism as early as age 2 and that it can have a significant impact on children and families. A panel of esteemed Black voices will share from their personal and professional experiences how to begin, continue, and navigate these conversations with your children.

Questions may include: How do we talk with kids about what they see on the news? How can parents have conversations about racism and still help kids feel safe, resilient, and positive about their identity?

Register by 9:00 pm on Thursday, June 25, to submit your questions for the panel. Parents who register and attend will receive a $25 Amazon gift card (see flyer for eligibility requirements)!
