Unpacking racism racial trauma and racial violence for Black Youth
Webinar – Unpacking racism racial trauma and racial violence for Black Youth
For General Attendees
It’s vital for caregivers of Black youth to make race a part of everyday conversation and to help their children/adolescents process the range of emotions and thoughts associated with observing racial injustices and secondary racial trauma. We can use this moment in time as a catalyst to normalize talking about race, help their children cope and thrive within a system of racism, and cultivate activism.
