What happens when a white foster mom reads Patrisse Cullors’ When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memior?
Foster Together Founder, Hope, will present a breakout session with Victoria Stone, Executive Director of Pikes Peak Justice and Peace. With Hope as a foster mom, and Victoria as a Black advocate for families at-risk for foster care, they will share from both “sides“ of the foster care system.
Together, Victoria and Hope will explore the way “the system“ and individual people can either reinforce or challenge stereotypes and long-standing oppressive norms.
“What Foster Parents Can Learn from Black Lives Matter” at the Educating Children of Color Conference at Colorado College on January 19, 2019. Their presentation will be at 2:30 pm, Session 5, in Armstrong 230.
Join us as we draw lessons from the justice work of civil rights to build a fresh, humble culture of foster parenting.
The conference is free to parents and students (8th grade and above), and $35 for professionals. Online registration is closed, but you may register in person at the conference in the lobby of Armstrong Hall.
