With compassion and bravery, Moms Against Racism invites parents to identify and dismantle racism around them, root out racist biases within them, and actively commit to learning how to raise anti-racist children.

This workshop is facilitated by Kerry Cavers, founder of Moms Against Racism. It’s online via Zoom so it’s easy to attend!
