Parent Education Class: Talking About Diversity and Race with Children

January 25, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for an evening of conversation about an important and timely topic: How to talk about the realities of race and diversity with our children. Annie Hostetter and Star Adita will lead a group discussion and provide parents with tools to facilitate age-appropriate conversations. This event is free and for adults only.

Star Adita is a resident of Indianapolis. She facilitates community talks on race, poverty, and human rights. She curates art shows on human social conditioning that spark community conversation and engagement. Her art and activism is based on the fact that people should be who they are and feel safe to do so. To quote Audre Lorde: “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

Annie Hostetter is an Indianapolis resident who has been working on social justice issues for over a decade, moving from post-Katrina New Orleans, the mountains of North Carolina, Tanzania, and Vermont before returning to her native Indianapolis. In addition to being a co-op parent, she currently manages volunteers at Second Helpings, wrangles two beautiful children, and continues to organize both on local and global issues.
