About the group:
Several months ago, RIAIMH began a 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. It is in this spirit that we will facilitate the Baby LLC CARE group. We look forward to this journey with our members to deepen knowledge and self-awareness in an effort to “do better” as we serve infants, young children and families in RI.
