(Virtual) Interrupting Racism for Children
The IARCA Institute is proud to present Interrupting Racism for Children. IRFC moves individuals from awareness to action to stop racism in its tracks, creating a future where children thrive, and race does not predict their life outcomes.
This interactive workshop will help participants understand and interrupt their implicit bias, gain an in-depth understanding of the definition and history of racism, as well as insight into the power they have to make changes in their personal and professional lives to Interrupt Racism for Children now. This workshop will give participants tools they can begin using immediately and is facilitated by Child Advocates.
Disproportionality has long been evident in the child welfare system. In Marion County, black children represent 11% of the child population; however, they represent 40.9% of children in the child welfare system compared to white children who represent 71% of the child population and only 46.7% of children in the system (Child Advocates Children in Need of Services Data, 2018). Interrupting Racism for Children (IRFC) has a powerful impact on how we all can take action to address racism in our community immediately.
- Participants will learn about the history of race and racism in Indiana.
