The conversation begins at home
The KidZone Museum is sharing critical resources from partner agencies to share with families on how to talk to your young child about racism and violence and how to respond in a nurturing way during times of trauma.
Together, we must work to dismantle and eradicate cultural, systemic and institutional racism. Every child has the right to grow up in a just society with access to quality education, equitable health care, and a criminal justice system that is fair.
KidZone Museum works everyday to inspire joy, creativity, and curiosity, and with our colleagues in the museum field, we stand against hatred, bigotry, and ignorance.
