How can I help you nurture antiracist kids?

Teach kids about social justice

Hi, I'm Rebekah Gienapp, antiracist parenting coach.

I teach parents and educators to raise antiracist kids who seek justice. I wear a lot of hats: writer, religious educator, former community organizer, and mom.

Many parents and educators aren't sure how to start talking to children about race. But kids want to understand how this complex topic affects them - if we have the courage to guide them.

Do you want to teach children what antiracism and justice look like? If you're looking for support and resources as you do just that, you're in the right place.

Rebekah's antiracist kids resources: what they're saying

Teaching Children About Racism | Talk About Race | Diversity for Children

"There’s so much to love about Rebekah Gienapp’s short book, Raising Antiracist Kids: An age by age guide for parents of white children. Its tons of practical advice that engage some of the most commonplace and difficult challenges caregivers face. The many stories from her personal experience as a child and mother. The accessibility of the ideas and language. The organization of the book by developmental stages. Most strikingly, Rebekah is as generous in sharing the many “mistakes” along her path to raising an antiracist son as she is with her wise advice, and in doing so she imparts arguably the most crucial lesson of all. To paraphrase Maya Angelou: do your best, and when you know better, do better. If you’re a white parent to white children and pay attention to this excellent book, you’ll do better."
