Add to Calendar 2020-08-13 18:00:00 2020-08-13 19:30:00 America/Chicago Join Live: Families Understanding Race, Racism & Anti-Racism Online

Racism is complicated, let’s talk about it. In this session, we'll discuss the ways that racism shows up in America and why it's important that conversations about race also include understanding how racism affects everyone in America. 

This hands-on series guides participants through how to better understand race, racism and anti-racism. You'll be provided a virtual workbook and time during each session to have discussions as a group, as well as with your family members.

Asia Lyons is the founder and lead consultant for Lyons Educational Consulting LLC, a consulting and coaching firm that supports schools and other non-profits in their creation of culturally responsive programming and curriculum. Lyons Educational Consulting also focuses on supporting families in having race, racism and anti-racism conversations through a Facebook group platform. Prior to founding Lyons Educational Consulting, Asia worked as a K-12 educator for over 10 years. She also served as the school-partner specialist at RISE Colorado where she worked with schools and other non-profits across the Denver Metro Area to provide communities with resources to help close the access gap for children of color. In addition to her work in coaching and consulting, Asia is also an adjunct instructor in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Colorado - Denver. She is also pursuing her doctorate in Leadership for Educational Equity, where her research focuses on the ways that racism-related stress crosses over from Black educators to their families. 

This program will take place online on Zoom. After registering, you will receive a link to the Zoom webinar at least one hour in advance of the program. If the event is full, or if you prefer, you can watch the event live streamed at SchaumburgLibrary.tv.
