Anti-Racism Resources and Conversations with Kids

Anti-Racism Resources and Conversations with Kids

Anti-racism resources and conversations with kids has been a hot topic during the past several weeks. The occupational therapists at AZ+A have been collecting these resources over the past six weeks for our kids and families. Just as we shared resources about talking to kids about COVID, we‘re sharing anti-racism resources/action-steps for kids in order to support our families in starting or continuing the conversation with their kids, when and if they feel the time is right.
