What’s that happening out in the street? There are people carrying signs, shouting “Black Lives Matter,” and marching…it’s a PROTEST! You see it and we know that your kids see it, too. They’ve probably got a whole lot of questions about what’s going on these days, like: Why are people so angry? Why are they saying those chants? Maybe your kids are even asking things like, Why did the police kill that man? or, Why doesn’t everyone treat Black people and White people the same way? Well, kids, those are some BIG QUESTIONS that we’re exploring in our new series, Social Justice and Anti-Racism for Kiddos! on Youtube.

This series features videos for Toddlers, Older Kiddos, and Nonverbal videos. These videos were designed to help parents grapple with those big questions and big feelings. Each video description includes a question guide for parents to continue conversations with their kids. We hope this is a helpful tool for all families learning how to navigate these tough times, how to engage with the Black Lives Matter movement, and how to be an active citizen!
