  • Join us for a wonderful webinar

    Let's talk about Whiteness in ECE

    Led by Ijumaa Jordan.  

    Sunday October 20 from 2 pm – 3 pm Pacific Standard time (3 pm MST, 4 pm CST, 5 PM EST)

    This webinar is a mini session about how white dominant culture norms, ideals, and educational practices harm Black, Indigenous, Children of Color and white children in developing healthy positive racial identities. We will explore strategies to support positive racial identities for children. In addition, we will discuss some practical ways to disrupt and eliminate the harm caused by white supremacy. 

    If you’re thinking about attending Let’s Talk About Whiteness session at NAEYC- this webinar will be a great place to get started on thinking about the topic.
