On this new episode of THRIVE, we talk with Charlotte Caples, racial equity strategist, and owner of Charlotte Caples Consulting, about the anti-racism movement that is ongoing and how we as a society can become the embodiment of anti-racism in our everyday life. Host, Kristen Pierce-Vreeke also talks with Charlotte on how parents can discuss racism with their children while covering topics such as microaggression and code-switching.

Austin Child Guidance Center is accepting nominations for the 11th Annual Phyllis Richards Icon for Youth Award.
