Social Justice Parenting
Social Justice Speaker Series Presents: Social Justice Parenting with Dr. Traci Baxley
We think of parenting as a blessing, as joyous, as exhausting, as demanding. What if we also thought of it as a form of activism?
In her book Social Justice Parenting, Dr. Traci Baxley—a professor of education who has spent 30 years teaching diversity and inclusion—offers essential guidance and a curriculum for parents to raise compassionate, socially-minded and aware kids. Dr. Baxley, a mother of five herself, suggests that parenting is a form of activism and encourages parents to acknowledge their influence over their kids and community.
How do our Jewish values affirm this work? How do we foster a sense of belonging for our children as individuals and in relation to others?
Join us for a stirring conversation between Dr. Traci Baxley and Rabbi Rachel Greengrass, as we explore – as parents, or grandparents, or educators, or community members – how to envision and put social justice parenting into practice.
