All are welcome to attend, however, meetings will aim to encourage dialogue between parents. Discussions will include issues such as implicit racial bias, cultural appropriation, and white privilege in order to raise self-awareness on these topics and also consider how personal insights can be translated into parenting techniques as well as interactions with other families and people in our community.
