Talking to Kids About Race & Racism: The Elementary Years

Talking to your kids about difficult topics is tough in the best of circumstances. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic, social isolation, and economic uncertainty, addressing racism and injustice can be even more challenging.

Austin Child Guidance Center is offering a FREE 90-minute panel discussion to help parents and caregivers engage in an on-going dialogue about race and racism.

Panelists from ACGC will be joined by local experts to discuss the impact of facing racism in school, society, and life on a child’s mental health.

This is our 2nd discussion in the series and will focus on elementary aged children. View the recording of our first discussion on June 11th.

When: July 9th
Time: Thursday 5:30 to 7:00 PM CST
Where: Video Conference, meeting link will be provided upon registration.
Cost: Free and donations to ACGC are welcome

The mission of the Austin Child Guidance Center is to improve the mental health of children and their families through early intervention, diagnosis and treatment to help them develop the emotional skills to face life’s challenges.
