As parents, we ensure our kids have tools to succeed in school and sports. What about providing them with tools they need to see the humanity of others, and to transform systemic oppression into an infrastructure for equity? Join the discussion with Dr. Kira Banks, an associate professor of psychology, whose YouTube series and online workshops focus on what it takes to prepare kids to be the change we want to see in the world.
