About this webinar:

Back by popular demand! Like schools and other community spaces, afterschool providers across the country have noticed an uptick in incidents of bias over the past year among students, parents, and even sometimes staff. This behavior might range from insensitive jokes and remarks, to hateful language or graffiti, to bullying and harassment. If one of these incidents happens in your program, how you respond is critical for maintaining the trust and respect of youth and their families. National experts like the Anti-Defamation League and Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, have been working on issues of bias and hate for decades. In this webinar, they'll share what they've learned and their resources for educators. Join us for a conversation about this very important topic!

  • Hoyt J. Phillips III, Manager, Teaching & Learning, Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center
