Discussing Race, Religion & Privilege with Our Kids and Why It’s Important
Monday, February 25, 2019 - 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. BPS Education & Administration Center (EAC)
31301 Evergreen in Beverly Hills
For students to be successful in an ever-changing global society and have a positive impact on their world, it is important for them to understand, value and respect the range of diversity in schools. It is also critical for adults to foster communities where students can be intellectually curious in socially supportive environments. This presentation will help parents/guardians develop skills to successfully navigate discussions with children about race, religion and privilege. All Birmingham Public Schools parents/guardians are invited to join us for practical information on facilitating candid conversations with kids and to hear information about district resources from Drs. Jay Marks, Diversity & Equity Consultant at Oakland Schools and Jamii Hitchcock, Director of Character Education, Diversity & Equity in Birmingham Public Schools. Light refreshments will be served. To RSVP, please email Joan Crampton, BPS Administrative Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
