Dr. Traci Baxley: Social Justice Parenting

Wednesday, November 3, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Barrett Bookstore, the Council of Darien School Parents, Darien Library, Ragetime CT and the YWCA of Darien and Norwalk are thrilled to welcome Dr. Traci Baxley in conversation with Reena Ninan, for a virtual conversation as she celebrates the release of her new book: Social Justice Parenting, How to Raise Compassionate, Anti-Racist, Justice-Minded Kids in an Unjust World.

About the Book

An empowering, timely guide to raising anti-racist, compassionate, and socially conscious children, from a diversity and inclusion educator with more than thirty years of experience.

As a global pandemic shuttered schools across the country in 2020, parents found themselves thrust into the role of teacher—in more ways than one. Not only did they take on remote school supervision, but after the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests, many also grappled with the responsibility to teach their kids about social justice—with few resources to guide them.

Now, in Social Justice Parenting, Dr. Traci Baxley—a professor of education who has spent 30 years teaching diversity and inclusion—will offer the essential guidance and curriculum parents have been searching for. Dr. Baxley, a mother of five herself, suggests that parenting is a form of activism, and encourages parents to acknowledge their influence in developing compassionate, socially-conscious kids.

Register for Dr. Traci Baxley: Social Justice Parenting via the Zoom registration. Participants will automatically be emailed the link to the Zoom webinar. For any questions regarding the program itself, please contact Page Berger at pbbarrettbooks@gmail.com
