This workshop will be a space to talk about activism, dissent, and speaking out as families. They will share resources, talk about concerns, trade ideas, and build community. Kids of all ages are welcome, and they will have additional child care support on hand in case parents and caregivers need a little break to talk.
Some topics include:
-Making kid friendly signs/making signs with your kids
-Talking to your kids about activism
-Determining what events feel right for your family
-Engaging kids in the process of speaking up
-Tips for how best to prepare for large events with kids
-Anything else the group wants to discuss!
Organizers will also share resources they are in the process of collecting. There is no one size fits all so an array of different ideas and perspectives are welcome!
This event is free but please let them know if you are coming via facebook so they can plan some materials accordingly.
