Raising Adults Podcast

Teaching Kids About Social Justice

In today’s episode of Raising Adults, Deana and Kira are back with an important topic: teaching kids about social justice. Because she is not a DEI educator, Kira shares who she is learning from and what the application looks like in her home.   “We cannot help the next generation to dismantle racism, challenge racial inequality, and imagine an America of inclusion, if we, as white parents, do not openly discuss the oppression and injustices that are inherent in the very design of our country, which was established by white men who believed that they were the superior race.” – Elisabeth Lepine   Today’s discussion includes: 

  • Appropriate vs. inappropriate resources (6:22)
  • Apron Education and Read Like a Rock Star Teaching (7:46)
  • The Conscious Kid, Little Justice Leaders and Brownicity (10:01)
  • The framework Kira uses in her house (11:56)
  • Modeling action and helping kids learn to take action (19:34)
  • How to talk about the complexities and when we get it wrong (23:11)
  • Accept the discomfort – if we’re not educating ourselves, we’re not doing the work (25:36)
  • Gracefully receiving feedback so we can do better (29:09)
