George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Ahmed Arbaury. We hear their names and their stories -- along with a tragic list of countless other names --  in the news and on social media, and we know it’s not just adults hearing and discussing this moment in our nation’s history. Our children at every age and stage are hearing these stories, too. Some of us have been talking about race in this country with our kids since they were born; others of us aren’t sure where to begin.

Wherever you are in your conversations on race with the kids and people in your life, we hope these resources below will provide guidance and support for your next steps. Many find resources like these helpful for conversations with adults too.
