How do we have conversations about race or racism with our children? How do we develop a positive racial identity in our children?

The PS 9 PTO, in cooperation with Border Crossers, is hosting a free training to guide PS 9 parents and care-givers to help answer these questions.

DATE: Tuesday, March 21st
