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.
