"This eye-opening book challenges you to do the essential work of unpacking your biases, and helps white people take action and dismantle the privilege within themselves so that you can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too."

We welcome you on this journey of discovery regarding race and the impact that it has in society, our work, and most importantly our own lives. We are committed to creating a space where we can explore diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism so that we can become anchors within our communities who courageously identify and speak up when challenged with racial injustice. We envision learning together with people across roles, programs, organizations and perspectives within our infant/early childhood community.
Following the Kick-Off, we plan to meet monthly (2 hours/virtual session) for 8 sessions. Due to the large number of interested participants, we have decided to offer 2 CARE groups. eGroups will be assigned at the kick-off. We will do our best to accommodate everyone's preferences. Participants will remain with the same group for the duration of the 8 sessions.

Post Event Evaluation:
Nearly every RIAIMH event has a post evaluation survey. We strive to include our members in many aspects of our Association and asking for their feedback is on the top of the list. Evaluation links are shared through Zoom CHAT at the event. If you did acess the post evaluation link in the chat, the post email from RIAIMH will include the link again. We encourage all participants to complete the evaluation, however evaluations must be completed by all who wish to receive a NASW CEU credit.
