On Thursday, June 18, Common Sense Media and the Commonwealth Club hosted a conversation titled “Parenting in Support of Black Lives: How to Build a Just Future for Kids (and How Media Can Help).”
Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith, a clinician, consultant and trainer, moderated the conversation, with Julie Lythcott-Haims (How to Raise an Adult) and Ibram X. Kendi (How to Be an Antiracist) weighing in on a range of urgent issues for parents and, really, anyone concerned about the state of our union.
Here are five takeaways from the event, which is available for viewing.
I attend every one of Promise Venture Studio’s Show+Tell webinars that I can because they introduce me to childhood development entrepreneurs I wouldn’t have heard about otherwise. The concise, compelling pitches at the events are aimed at funders, researchers and policy makers who can scale up visionary ideas—but they’re valuable for anyone in the field.
