What we're about

ROOTS Connected: Is a family group for Black parents and parent/caretakers of Black children that centers the narrative on raising strong, healthy, resilient Black children. Facilitated conversations will explore and celebrate RICE (Race, Identity, Community and Equity). Special discussion topics include: Black History, Black and multiracial identity in our children; Black hair and beauty; the impacts of institutionalized racism on Black children; and how parents can be equipped with knowledge through community engagement and involvement in programs and organizations that directly impact the Black family. Our meetings are designed to create spaces for families to share and interact with other families.
