Talking With Your Kids About Racism

George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Ahmaud Arbery. We keep thinking about their mothers. The unimaginable pain and sorrow. And, as two white women and co-founders, we looked inward. We're heartbroken, and we want to DO something.

Since this is a community of badass new and future moms, we've put together some resources on how to talk with children about race and how to raise anti-racist kids. Because THIS HAS TO END. Because equality, justice, empathy and love are the values we hold dear.
