Banking Campaign Meet-Up!

Join us for a 1 hour meet-up to learn more about the Banking For Our Kids campaign and some new resources and actions we're working on.

We have a couple of fun ideas for quick actions you can take with your family in the lead-up to the holidays to raise awareness about banks' fossil fuel funding and call for a quick transition to a low-carbon future! 

Everyone is welcome, whether you're new to the banking campaign or you've been involved for a while. Hope to see you there!

Anti-Racism Training

Session Three

Using Your Power and Privilege to Dismantle Racism

Saturday, January 20, 2024

10 am PT / 11 am MT/ 12 noon CT/ 1 pm ET/ 2 pm AT  - (2 hour session) 

This training series, developed and presented by Moms Against Racism, resulted from requests from For Our Kids' teams for more support and training on integrating anti-racist values and practices into their community organizing, including how to build more inclusive and diverse teams.

Sessions are open for all local team members and individual parents in the For Our Kids network. Participants are asked to attend all three trainings. Being part of a cohort of learners will help us support each other in applying what we learn across our teams and network in real time.    

Session Three: Using Your Power and Privilege to Dismantle Racism

This 2hr training focuses on structures of power and strategies to dismantle systemic racism. This training will cover:
  1. Examining power and power imbalances
  2. Key concepts such as white fragility, white exceptionalism, intersectionality, allyship, accomplice-ship, and racial justice
  3. Highlight some strategies to dismantle racism

About the Session Presenter

Kerry Cavers is a community builder and founder of Moms Against Racism. For Our Kids members who have attended "How to Raise an Anti-Racist Child" have experienced Kerry's thoughtful, purposeful, and caring leadership through sometimes difficult examinations of the biases and racism that is ingrained in our thoughts, beliefs and actions.

We are deeply grateful to Kerry for her dedication to providing this more in-depth training series for FOK members. 

The mission of Moms Against Racism is to educate individuals in anti-racism, cultural competence, and decolonization so they have the tools and support to dismantle racism within themselves, their families, and their communities. 

What we heard from members who attended previous workshops with Kerry:

"I found it infinitely valuable and inspiring. Kerry is an amazing speaker." 

"I have much more confidence now on how to continue my anti-racist journey."
