Dear Parents and Grandparents,
As we began a discussion about how parents could talk to their kids about racism, many of you expressed interest in forming a Facebook group where we could engage on this topic together.
That group has been created and we would like to invite you to join us at:
UMC Parents Talk About Racism
Hosted by Christ Church United Methodist and Santa Rosa First United Methodist Church, this group is a space for our parents to share resources, ideas, struggles and victories in talking to our kids about racism.
You are also welcome to invite parents from outside our church circles who are interested in being part of this discussion. A few simple guidelines for kind and respectful communication are posted in the group.
We hope that you will join in this conversation with us, and that this group will be a valuable resource to the parents and families in our church community.
