Rescheduled Online Speaker’s Forum Healing the Impact of Racial Injustice and Inequity: The Role of Afterschool
Friday, August 14, 2020; 10-11:30 am
A Webinar with Dr. Shawn Ginwright, Hosted by How Kids Learn
The COVID-19 pandemic and the long list of African Americans killed by police has laid bare the racial injustice and inequity in our society. We know that many adult staff and many of our youth participants in afterschool are people of color. In the wake of this turmoil, how can we address the needs of our staff? How can we prepare staff and redesign our programs to promote racial healing? What is the best way to facilitate discussions of systemic racism? How is afterschool positioned for this? Should we urge/ support youth to engage in civic action? And, is there a way to do some of this work remotely, as programs may not re-open in the Fall? Dr. Ginwright will address some of these questions in his presentation and will be available to respond to questions.
