NCW  - NCW Libraries is proud to partner with Cultures Connecting to present a free virtual workshop on Talking to Young People about Race on Thursday, January 20 at 7 p.m.
 
Richard Kim, from Cultures Connecting, will share tools and ideas for how caregivers, educators, and families can give children anti-bias messages, through actions and words to actively counter what they may be seeing in the world. Kim will also share ways adults can model and encourage children to advocate for themselves and others.
 
This is the third event in a series of four workshops hosted by NCW Libraries in partnership with Cultures Connecting, a non-profit organization that provides culturally relevant professional development, consulting, coaching, and one-on-one diversity leadership support to organizations and communities. The fourth event, focusing on how to have courageous conversations, will be held on Tuesday, February 22 at 7 p.m.
 
Presenter Richard Kim brings nearly a decade of professional experience with a person centered approach to engaging race, culture, and identity in various non-profit and education settings. Most recently, Richard worked as the Intercultural Credibility Coordinator/Consultant at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, where he received his M.Div. Kim holds a B.S. from the University of Minnesota. As a person born in the United States to parents who emigrated from South Korea, Richard brings an uncommon voice to the work of racial equity.
 
All NCW Libraries' virtual programs are free and open to the public. This event will be held through the zoom digital meeting platform. To participate, register at www.ncwlibraries.org.  Registrants will receive an email with the Zoom meeting information.
