NBCDI and partnering agencies/organizations recently released an activity book to help families, caregivers, places of worship, and civic groups guide children in coping with crisis in response to police brutality and impacts on the Black community.
On behalf of our national office, we invite you to utilize this resource in your work with African American families who have children and are experiencing the Black Lives Matter movement and protests for civil rights, alongside adults.
BCDI-Atlanta President Dr. Bisa Batten Lewis reflects, "Throughout history, children have served as significant partners in the fight for peace, justice, equity and equality. We must remember, children are not just observers. By nature, they are creative thinkers and problem-solvers. We must not ignore their wonder, intellect, or desire for engagement".
