Event: Connecting the Issues Strategies for Addressing Racism with Young People Webinar


The Texas Council on Family Violence presents Connecting the Issues: Strategies for Addressing Racism with Young People Webinar

Register for free webinar August 24, 2016 from 1:30-3:00 pm

 Racism in our society perpetuates oppressive and inaccurate racial and gender stereotypes, which are patterns youth begin to mirror as early as the age of three. These are among factors placing young people at risk for violence.

Primary prevention best practice shows that it is crucial to address stereotypes and the role they play in promoting dating abuse and obstructing healthy friendships and relationships. What does a prevention worker do when racism becomes a topic in a prevention education session?

Join us for a webinar exploring options developed by prevention educators in the field. Presenters include:
