Anti-Racist Resources

adult literature

Here’s what parents can do to help:

Read books, watch movies and consume media with racially diverse characters. Read with your children or talk with them about what they’re reading.

Be proactive in bringing up conversations about race with your kids. Ask them what they are hearing and experiencing.

Kids will hear what’s happening in the news. Discuss it with them in an age-appropriate way.

Role play what to do when you see a racist incident. Talk to your kids if a racist incident happens to your child or to someone in your community.
