Talking About Race

Talking about race early and often with all kids is an effective way to reduce racism, encourage understanding, and help children of color to proudly celebrate and embrace their racial and cultural identities. Please reference our Adoptee & Foster Voices, Hair Care, Transracial Parenting/Cultural Diversity and Tribal Resource pages for more resources.

Be sure to explore ORPARC's Culture Connection Collection, a library collection curated by experts to support kids of color in care and those caring for them!
