Join Breakfast Clubs Against Racism and World-Changing Kids for this amazing workshop on Race and the Media. Through this workshop, the kids will learn what racism means and the three levels of how racism operates in society – Institutionalized Racism, Personally Mediated Racism and Internalized Racism. We will investigate how race and racial stereotypes are portrayed in the media, exploring common biases and stereotypes. And we will discuss micro agressions. By the end of the workshop, the awesome kids will have a better understanding of all of these important issues and will have knowledge of concrete actions they can take to be anti-racist.
Check out our Facebook event page here for even more info.
We have listed the age range of 8 – 13 as a guide. We are happy to have younger children join … especially with parental involvement. You know your child best – if you think you have a 7 year old who could handle attending this on their own, feel free to sign them up. If you have even younger children, but want to attend with them, sign up as a family. We do love when we have parents joining us for the workshop! You are always able to mute yourself, you can even have your video off – and the kids are not expected to sit still and listen perfectly! We want everyone to participate in whatever way they feel comfortable and learn best! And we don’t believe that kids are ever too young to discuss a topic – especially with their parents there to help field additional questions.
The workshop will take place through Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed to participants the day of the workshop.
You will notice that we have listed two ticket prices for the workshop – $20 or $30 per family. I use this two ticket format when I am running a workshop with a guest. When I invite a guest to a workshop, I want to make sure that they are fairly compensated, so I split the revenue from a shared workshop 50/50. But I also want to be sensitive to our participants’ needs right now.
With this two ticket format, families can self-select the ticket price that works best for them in this current time. We know that a lot of people are experiencing financial hardship right now, and we want to be empathetic, compassionate and accommodating to that. But we also know that there are others who are less affected financially right now and are looking for ways to help our artists, organizations, community builders and businesses. We thought that this two ticket price system was a fair way to balance all this. Please select either price, without any guilt or fear of judgement. And, if $20 is not possible at this time, but you really want to attend, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out!
