With the current rise in national media coverage of issues connected to identity, such as race and gender identity, many children are struggling to understand what is happening around them, and how it impacts them and their families. This training will provide parents and families with an overview of key terms related to identity and human relations to help them better understand rapidly changing identities and communities.
The training will also explore some pressing human relations issues facing students in schools, and will include a hands-on practice session for parents and families to use listening and reflective question asking skills with their children.
This workshop is sponsored by the MWPTA and FOMWS, and presented by California Conference for Equality and Justice (CCEJ): a human relations organization dedicated to eliminating bias, bigotry and racism through education, conflict resolution and advocacy. CCEJ is recognized by schools, community organizations, and government agencies as a leading expert in the area of human relations.
Childcare will be provided. Please click here to sign up for the workshop in advance so we can estimate attendance and plan accordingly.
