Parent Toolkit - #RacismENDSWithUs

The events in America over the past ten days and the brutal murder of George Floyd have been truly shocking. 

As a collective staff body, we have been looking at positive ways we can support you as parents during this time, and even if we are not together in person, how we can stand together and unite against racism.

Below you will find a series of educational articles, readings, websites, and podcasts that we have put together as a starting point to tackle prejudice, injustice and inequality. We welcome your thoughts and feedback. If you have any comments or suggestions please email AdewaleF@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk.
