Kids and Race: Changing the Narrative (in Kirkland)

  • Holy Spirit Lutheran Church 10021 Northeast 124th Street Kirkland, WA, 98034 United States

Race still matters in America today. How can we raise children who go beyond the superficial notion of colorblindness to see and challenge the ways that privilege still shapes our lives? How can parents prepare to seize the teachable moments that arise when we least expect them?

Join us at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Kirkland for this 2.5 hour workshop specially suited for preschool through elementary age children and their parents. Children and parents have separate programs to engage them. Please email katy@hslckirkland.org to register. This event is free, but registration is strongly recommended. 

This workshop will focus on identity development and cultural norms. Presenters include Rev. Darla DeFrance and early childhood educator Jason Frelot on how narratives and counter-narratives shape our children's personal and racial identity development.

This workshop series is a co-sponsored project with Columbia City Church of Hope.
