Peaceful protests, mass marches, and portrayals of violence. Petitions, political speeches, and demonstrations. The last few weeks have seen movements advocating for an end to racial inequality on a mass scale. Yet, current affairs aren’t always tangible or immediately clear, especially from a child’s perspective. Many children may have questions about the images, stories, and conversations they hear on the news and around them. The resource below is intended to support conversations between parents/carers and children around the Black Lives Matter movement.
