    During these turbulent times of COVID 19-related anti-Asian racism and Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of police violence against African Americans, many parents are wondering how to have meaningful discussions with their children about race and racism. As parents of sons and daughters of all ages who are Chinese, how can we support them and be their best advocates? What does it actually mean to be anti-racist? Join FCC NY and Dr. Amanda Baden for a panel discussion on how to discuss race and build an anti-racist perspective.”  

    Dr. Amanda Baden will lead by discussing:

  •  The impact on adoptees of the heightened racial awareness and tension in this COVID 19/Black Lives Matter environment 
  • What adoptees are experiencing as people of color growing up in white families 
  •  How to talk to our kids meaningfully about race 
  • How we can best support them during these turbulent times. 

This will be followed by a panel discussion with three women from the Montclair State Counseling program about their experiences in racial sensitivity training and their journeys to becoming anti-racist. These will be followed by a Q&A with participants. 

Please join us, and bring your thoughts and questions to this very important discussion at the intersection of race, adoption, and parenting.
