Talking to Kids about Racism and Social Justice

In times of crisis, people often reach back to their traditions, their ideals, their values. At the Child Abuse Council, we have our mission, our vision and our values as a guide. Our vision is to see all children raised in a safe, nurturing family environment, regardless of the color of their skin. Our values dictate that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect and we believe that children and families have the right to live without violence or neglect.


Racism thrives in silence. It is time to voice our frustration and anger by calling for change and finding hope in a situation that feels hopeless among people who feel helpless. Let’s work together to build a stronger, more resilient community by educating our children, ourselves, and our community on how we can listen better, raise the voices of those that need to be heard, and stand up for those facing injustice.

Book Lists
Books are incredibly powerful tools and an important part of your child's development. We have created several book lists for caregivers to refer to for their young children.
