When one child tells another, “You can’t celebrate that!” how do you respond? Join us in conversation with educator Nadia Jaboneta as we explore what it means to bring courage, empathy and integrity to challenging conversations about holidays, race, culture, and religion. We'll explore our own assumptions and possibilities, and how our values about diversity and equity affect our subsequent interactions with children, families and colleagues.

When: Tuesday, November 29th at 7:00-8:30 pm Eastern

Includes: An excerpt from the Exchange Press book, You Can't Celebrate That! Navigating the Deep Waters of Social Justice Teaching by Nadia Jaboneta.

Hosted by Kirsten Haugen and Sara Gilliam of Exchange Press.

"I would like to comment on the fantastic structure and facilitation of the moderators… [their approach] felt rich, thoughtfully placed, an extender of the conversation, inclusive of the participants, and a wonderful springboard of many conversations to come."
