REGISTER HERE to join this FREE, online, community conversation on TUESDAY, August 22nd at 5:30 pm PT/ 8:30 pm ET.
Why We Gather. Given the current deeply divisive political environment in the US and the threats many racial and ethnic minority communities face, it is important to educate children early about cultural and religious diversity and break down entrenched stereotypes. Join this EmbraceRace community conversation with Gauri and Sadaf from KitaabWorld. They’ll share their “Counter Islamophobia Through Stories” campaign, a campaign that provides a framework and booklists to facilitate a positive representation of Muslims for all children.
We invite anyone raising, mentoring, teaching, advising kids to join us for this conversation. Registering also ensures that you will receive the after-event recording and resources whether you attend live or not.
8:30 to 8:35 pm ET: EmbraceRace co-founders, Andrew Grant-Thomas and Melissa Giraud, introduce Gauri and Sadaf of Kitaabworld.
8:35 to 9 pm ET: Gauri and Sadaf share their perspective
9 to 9:30 pm ET: Community Q & A
