We recognize the importance of talking with children about race and equity–
often and from a young age! Our youngest learners look to their parents and caregivers to not only create safe environments so they can thrive, but to also give them the tools to process current events. 

Check out these resources for tips and tools on how to have these important conversations with the children in your life:

At CFRC, we are also building our Early Learning Center Library with books on how to talk to your child about race and racism. We are having a lot of tough conversations these days and this collection of picture books help kick start important dialogue and provide context. We would love to have these books available for our members to check out in our Early Learning Center. Please consider making a purchase to help our collection grow.
