Time: 9:00 - 10:00 am

Battling Racism and Bullying Through Books
In this workshop, Kinota shares the story of his daughter who experienced racial bullying at her Japanese elementary school because of her skin color.
Throughout the workshop, Kinota shares a universal message that all children are beautiful regardless of their skin color, and he helps us think about how we can educate our students and promote acceptance.
Takeaways from this workshop include:
- Encouraging adults to help children to take purposeful steps toward anti-racism
- Build a shared understanding of concepts related to race, racism, and anti-racism
- Provide strategies to sustain anti-racist practices when responding to racist events
- Reading of Kinota's Sakura Medal Nominee book Mio The Beautiful
- Sharing of Kinota's anti-racism resources (lesson+unit plans) for teachers
The workshop is followed by a Q&A time in which participants are welcome to ask questions as well as share their own stories.

TALKING ABOUT SUBJECTS THAT ARE UNCOMFORTABLE
Children want us to tell them the truth, when they ask questions. If we just stick with the facts, and say things as they are, this will avoid any issues of mistrust or further questioning. Children can sense when we are honest or not. Tell them the facts. Leave out the emotions. PEACE TO UKRAINE.
