E2: Talking to Middle School-Aged Kids About the Uprising Following George Floyd’s Murder - Part 2 of 3
Show Notes

We have been living in “COVID” times now for five months, seeing the death toll continue to rise in the United States - currently standing at more than 170,000 deaths. And our country’s other pandemic, racism, is alive and well. Breonna Taylor was murdered by police while sleeping in her home in February and George Floyd was killed, very publicly, by police in May. In this episode, SooJin and Hannah bring in Karla Benson Rutten who is a parent of two and a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion expert to share stories and process this moment. We discuss a variety of ways to talk to middle school-aged kids about racism. Thank you for listening and making a commitment to antiracist parenting!
