Embracing and Affirming Our Grandchildren’s Many Identities
Hosted By: The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ)
Children are growing up in a world that is new to many of us. Terms like “non-dominant identities, REDI (racial equity, diversity and inclusion), transgender and nonbinary” may feel unfamiliar and even uncomfortable. These sessions will provide us with foundational knowledge, shared language, and inclusive practices so that we can better demonstrate our unconditional love and support for the important young people in our lives. Join us for a two-part series by the Union for Reform Judaism, Jewish Grandparents Network, and Keshet to support you in providing affirming spaces for gender-expansive, non-binary, and transgender young people.
Session 1 – Tuesday, March 15, 2022: Creating Safe & Affirming Spaces for Our Grandchildren: Addressing Racism, Transphobia, and Lack of Disabilities Inclusion in Our Communities. As grandparents we have vital roles to play in making our grandchildren feel loved and embraced for who they are and who they become. Through our words and our actions, we can make their path in life smoother. Learn to embrace the language of inclusion and to recognize and prevent racism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of oppression in our communities and in our families.
