Resources for Raising Anti-Racist Kids
My partner and I believe that #BlackLivesMatter and that one of the most important contributions we can make to movements for social justice is raising our kids right.
We are committed to raising kids who are not afraid to take *action* in order to combat racism (in themselves, in their families, in their communities), and who believe in and will fight for equity, inclusion, and social justice.
For context: we are a multiethnic, multiracial, bilingual (Spanish/English), MexiRican family, living in one of the most diverse cities in the United States.
We know that combatting the anti-blackness that runs rampant within our Latinx communities will be central to the work we do as parents. We also know we must prepare our kids for the possibility that they might face discrimination or witness other loved ones facing discrimination.
About these Resources
I've compiled the resource guides and reading lists below to help us with our own Anti-Racist parenting work, and I share them here in the hopes they may be useful to you as well.
#BlackLivesMatter Poetry & Other Resources
Below I offer a compilation of links to poetry and resources I’m turning to and sharing with others right now.
This list is by no means exhaustive.
Its contents have been helpful for me, and may, in turn, be helpful for you.
