Leadership Convos #2: Raising AAPI Kids to Combat Anti-Blackness

February 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Change starts with us and our families.

Racism is a difficult issue to discuss, especially within our own families. This Black History Month, we are honored to partner with the Leadership Conference Education Fund’s “Black Justice is Our Justice” campaign to host #LeadershipConvos 2, a conversation about teaching our kids to be leaders within our own families to combat anti-Blackness and racism.

Anti-Blackness is at the center of bigotry and xenophobia in America today. Fighting all forms of bigotry in this country demands that we combat anti-Blackness and reckon with our ongoing legacy of white supremacy.

Black Justice is Our Justice. Black Justice is Immigrant Justice. Black Justice is Asian American Justice.

Join us for an hour-long workshop with activists and artists who will share their perspective on how to raise AAPI kids to fight anti-Blackness. The first half will be a conversation with our activists and scholars in social justice who will lay the groundwork on why “Black Justice Is Our Justice” and anti-racist parenting. This will be followed by convening the artists with the activists to discuss their lived experiences raising AAPI kids, including celebrating Black History Month. Watch #LeadershipConvos 1 here.
