Talking to your children about Black Lives Matter

Peaceful protests, mass marches, and portrayals of violence. Petitions, political speeches, and demonstrations. The last two weeks have seen movements advocating for an end to racial inequality on a mass scale. Yet, current affairs aren’t always tangible or immediately clear, especially from a child’s perspective.

Many children may have questions about the images, stories, and conversations they hear on the news and around them.   To support your discussions about race and racism with children at home, we have attached a useful document that aims to guide you in translating these issues into relatable and easily understood ideas to share your children.
