What are the unique barriers facing children of color in Denver in living healthy lives? How can communities learn more about the historical background of these barriers? What can individuals do to advocate for better health outcome for all kids? We’ll tackle these questions and other important issues in our workshop next week in Denver.

All our children deserve access to the opportunities they need to succeed. Together, parents, advocates and others who care about kids can use data, personal stories and research-driven communication to break down barriers to racial and socio-economic justice.

During this interactive workshop, our Research Director, Sarah Hughes, will share why data can be helpful in making a case for health equity; Communications and Outreach Director, Tara Manthey, will provide training on a research-based approach to talking about race and inequity known as ACT: Affirm, Counter, Transform; and participants will have the opportunity to reflect on childhood experiences with race and practice using the ACT approach in their advocacy for child wellbeing.

  • Dinner begins at 5:30, workshop begins at 6:00 p.m.
  • Free and open to the community!
  • Child care available upon request.
  • Traducción en español disponible a pedido.
