This follow-up to Kids and Race: Changing the Narrative teaches caregivers how to recognize and address the misuse of power and privilege in children. This workshop empowers educators and parents to give voice to children of color without tokenizing a child who often just wants to fit in.

Our program includes a concurrent children’s program for 3 – 10 year olds led by professional educators. Younger or older children are welcome to stay with their parents. Using art, movement, music and conversation, we teach children to notice and celebrate their own power and privilege. Then we encourage them to utilize their individual advantages for the good of those who are most often overlooked.

We make every effort to make our events accessible; please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Scholarships available upon inquiry for families in need.

Testimony:
“This workshop changed the way I interact with, think about my place the world and parent my children. The exercises were incredibly helpful to go through as an adult- I became aware of and can now tangibly name and identify the power and privilege I’ve enjoyed throughout my life, the first step I needed to be able to facilitate my children’s ability to be allies.” -Seattle Mom of three

“My kids LOVE Kids and Race workshops. My 10 year old son can readily identify instances of bias in our society and community, and his awareness of others and practice of empathy has noticeable increased. Now with the tools I learned in the parent workshops I can continue the dialogue and growth in our household.” – Bothell Mom of two boys, ages 8 and 10.
