I hope you are surviving, managing and maybe even thriving during this unprecedented time in history.
In this episode, I am sharing with you a Facebook LIVE I did with Kayla Burton, BCC trainer and mental health expert on social injustice and racism. It is powerful, informative and enlightening.
We dive right in and it was our goal to do so without judgment. Here are just a few nuggets we bring to the talk:
• How do I explain racism to my children?
• Is racism systemic in law enforcement?
• How do we make real change?
• The number we thing we can ALL do to help wipe out racism.
Kayla also shared a slew of resources for us to use to continue to learn long after people stop talking. I have listed them below.
As always, thank you so much for taking the time to listen to our podcast. If you would like to reach out to Kayla for additional information, please email me at email@example.com and I will connect you.
Love you hard,
