“Is it okay to say...”
And Other Uncomfortable Questions

Real Talk with Compass Parents:
A Community Conversation about Race, Class, Gender & Culture

Thursday, March 16, 6pm
6pm dinner & childcare check-in
6:30pm-7:45pm discussion

We’ve all got questions and concerns about how to talk to our kids (and each other!) about differences and diversity. Maybe you’ve had a situation with your kids where you weren’t sure how to respond or you’ve learned a strategy that you’d like to share. We’re collecting questions so we have a head start on some of the topics we can cover during our Family Workshop. There are NO stupid questions or topics too big or small. We hope to evolve this into a series of conversations where we can explore these issues together and learn from one another’s experiences. Please join us for a moderated discussion with Compass Parents:
Irwin Chen (Pine)
Vin Sharma (Elm)
Sara McKay (Pine)
Lateefah Torrance (Oak)

Moderated by Doris Chang (Pine), an Associate Professor of Psychology, New School for Social Research
