This summer we have watched individuals and communities across the country face some hard truths about race and racism. The racial inequities, prejudices, injustices and violence have played out in real time on television and online – and teens are paying attention.

This panel discussion comprised of adults and teens focuses on how we can come together to guide and lead teens to a deeper level of awareness of the role race and racism plays in our history, society, families, schools and world. Together, we are learning more about the experiences of people of color, racial inequalities and racist systems, and how injustices have an impact on the mental health of black, indigenous, and children of color.

Moderated by Kristen Pierce-Vreeke, Executive Director.
