In today’s world many grandparents and other relatives are stepping up to raise the children when the parents are unable to because of substance abuse, physical or mental health issues, incarceration, military deployment, or other reasons.

Transracial/Transcultural Parenting Workshop

Have you adopted, or have you been fostering, a child of a different race or ethnicity?

Are you contemplating doing so?

Are you kin or fictive kin raising a mixed-race or multicultural child?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, please join us for the Transracial/Transcultural Parenting Workshop, which will take place on Saturday, September 29th from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, in South Burlington.

During this workshop, you will consider:

  • Your own culture and its role in your life.
  • The joys and challenges of being a conspicuous family.
  • How elements of privilege, implicit bias, discrimination, and racism could impact your family.
  • How you’ll move forward as a multiracial, multicultural family.

The cost of this workshop is $25. Lunch will be provided.
