Despite our best efforts to protect youth from the details of hate-motivated events, we can never assume that they are unaware of what is happening around them.
Feelings of fear, powerlessness and vulnerability are common experiences all people share whenever acts of hatred, terrorism, or mass shootings occur.
Children and teens are not immune to these feelings, but adults can help by providing information that answers their questions, giving them opportunities to express how they feel, reassuring them that adults in their lives are working to keep them safe.
We at ADL would like to help you reassure them by providing this free parent workshop,
“Empowering Young People in the Aftermath of Hate.”
This interactive workshop will include:
• Balancing the Good and the Bad
• Remembering Those Hurt by Hate
• The Trouble with Stereotypes
• The Escalation of Hate
Light refreshments will be served.
