ABAR – Anti-Bias, Anti Racist Training – February 17th

Please join us for our first Wilson Families United parent workshop!  Before this school year began, all our teachers received training in ABAR (Anti-bias Anti-racist education). This interactive workshop will introduce parents and other educators to the 4 goals of Anti-Bias Education for children and the 5 goals for adults. It will empower parents and educators alike to begin to self-reflect on their own prejudices and biases and learn how to challenge and empower children to do the same at home and in the classroom.

This Saturday, 2/172-4 pm.  Childcare available!  $10 donation requested but not required to attend!  Please click here for more information.   www.wilsonfamilies.us/ABAR
