Teddy Bear Protest: A Family’s Guide to Protest

In this workshop and discussion we’ll be talking about what protest and activism feels like as a family. Whether it’s an online campaign like Marley Dias’s appeal #1000blackgirlbooks or at a march or protest, activism gives us the opportunity to discuss world events and injustice with our children and helps to shape them into involved, concerned, civic-minded citizens.

With a little preparation, there is no reason why children can’t join adults in having their voices heard. This session will be facilitated by Aliyah Hasinah.

This family event is for parents / guardians. Children and babies are welcome.
