Online Conversation: Building Solidarity Among Black & Latinx Kids & Families


We're happy to share information about this upcoming conversation, hosted by EmbraceRace!

Building Solidarity among Black & Latinx Kids & Families

October 8, 2020 @ 8:30 pm ET

In the United States, we tend to think of race relations as something that happens between “White people” and “people of color.” But racialized dynamics happen among and between Black and Indigenous people, and People of Color as well - and the templates for those relationships often are established when our children are young. 

We're excited for this conversation with Ronda Bullock and Fabiola Salas Villalobos from we are (working to extend anti-racist education), based in Durham NC, about their multifaceted efforts to build solidarity among Black and Latinx children and families. Ronda and Fabiola will offer insights about how, in the course of delivering its antiracist educational programming, we are is striving to move beyond a thin kind of “inclusivity” to build strong relationships and genuine solidarity among its Black and Brown children and families. As always, your questions, insights, and experiences will be welcome!
