Kindergarten & 1st Grade Parents Night – March 6th, 5:30-7:00 pm

Undoing Racism workshop facilitated by Families of Color Seattle (FOCS)


Thursday, January 23rd
6-8PM in the BHIS school library

Trainers from Families Of Color Seattle will lead a dialogue workshop where parents and educators will grow their understanding of systemic racism and creating inclusive and anti-racist learning spaces for children. The dialogue will focus on deeper self-awareness of power, privilege, affinity group work and racial equity. Together through sharing narratives, we work towards the goal of increasing parent engagement in undoing racism, growing inclusive spaces for children of color and raising all children with anti-oppression values.
