Bias and Kids: How Do Our Prejudices Affect Our Children? - English & Spanish

How Do Our Prejudices Affect Our Children?

February 26, 2020 | 6:30 p.m. | Bush Elementary School

410 14th Street SE, Salem OR 97301

*This conversation will be offered in both English and Spanish. Most people agree that children need healthy, loving, supportive environments to thrive. But, as parents, family members, teachers, neighbors, and voters—how do our biases influence how we interact with the children in our lives and communities? And, how do those biases influence how children perceive themselves and what they will become? During our conversation led by Verónika Nuñez and Kyrié Kellett, we will reflect on how our biases—conscious and unconscious—related to gender, race, class, culture, and other traits, shape everything from our subtle interactions with the kids we care for to the way we make political decisions that influence children in our society.
