THE COLOR OF LOVE: Raising Our Children in a Diverse and Inclusive World

April 6 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

donation-only

LAUNCH EVENT!

The mountains of racial and social justice are massive. We are on the precipice of creating a new dawn for future generations and our children are looking to us to lead the way. With school gun violence at an all time high, the latest extreme exposure of racial injustice and gender discrimination, and our children innocently caught in the middle, how can we, as women and mothers, come together in compassionate connection to move the mountains of true transformation?

Join Tiffany Grimm, founder of Mothers Moving Mountains, as she hosts a dynamic panel of diversity experts, in this empowering and engaging multicultural community discussion and workshop. Topics will be focused on creating a shared language, uncovering identity, anti-oppression, racial justice and education. Through an interactive panel Q&A, self-reflection exercises, partnered and small group breakouts, and collective games, you’ll have the opportunity to both educate and learn in this workshop.  

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  1. Create a deeper awareness of your inherent natural biases and cultivate more empathy and acceptance.
  2. Learn the universal language around diversity and inclusion to communicate effectively within your family and community.  
  3. Identify ways to impact the educational system that promote a solution rather than perpetuate the problem.
  4. Implement creative educational strategies at each of your child’s stages of development to amplify their understanding of diversity.
  5. Form new relationships with multicultural mothers who also want to move the mountains of social justice.

*Proceeds will benefit the respective organizations of the panel participants and an initiative to create a childhood diversity education program.
*Light snacks, wine and sparkling water will be served.
