How to talk to your kids about race (It's easier than you think!)

5 lucky attendees will receive a copy of "Dear White Women" after the event! – You'll have to be present to win! 

What can I do to help combat racism? It’s a question many of us have been asking over the past two years. One answer that’s particularly relevant for white women: Read Sara Blanchard and Misasha Suzuki Graham’s new book Dear White Women: Let’s Get (Un)Comfortable Talking About Racism. Coming out of the success of their podcast by the same name, Sara and Misasha wrote Dear White Women to break down the psychology and barriers to having meaningful discussions about race, contextualize racism, and offer practical tips on talking about racism. 

We’re thrilled to have Sara and Misasha join Chairman Mom to discuss Dear White Women, why they wrote it, and answer questions about, not only how to have these conversations in your own life, but how to have these conversations with your kids, too. 

In addition to sharing more about the book, we’ll discuss how this conversation fits into our upcoming 7-week course Raise Better Humans, which starts on November 15. The course promises to help parents have the hard conversations, create a more diverse community for your family, and raise kids acutely aware of their own privilege who know how to be better allies to kids around them, even when you’re not there. 

Sara and Misasha will kick off the course in week 1, talking all about creating a more diverse community for your family without tokenizing anyone. All participants of the course will receive a free copy of Dear White Women, in addition to other books included in the Raise Better Humans book bundle.
