Resource Guide: How to Talk to Your Kids About Racism and Social Injustice

By Laura Byrne

As this week comes to a close, take a moment to realize…we are living in a time that will go down in the history books as a pivotal moment of change. This is a time for us to open our hearts and our ears and listen and fight for change.

As parents, we must all take a stand against social injustice and racism. Our kids deserve better. We believe their generation will be the greatest generation, but we must guide them. It starts with taking a stand.

We stand against social injustice. We stand against systematic racism. We stand against inequality. We stand against hate.

We stand for safe and healthy families. We stand for equality for all. We stand with #BlackLivesMatter. We stand with you.

To help you navigate the conversation, we have put together a list of some of our favorite resources to help you open up with your children:
