Educating against Racism
29 Oct 2020 -  The United Nations will host a discussion entitled “Educating against Racism” on 29 October at 10:00 a.m. EDT. The programme will explore how education and educators can challenge racism and prejudice - legacies of histories of oppression, atrocity crimes and genocide. The programme will illustrate how teachers might facilitate difficult conversations about identity, discrimination, racism and prejudice, and support students to respond with empathy and action.

Karen Polak, senior staff member at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and international coordinator of Stories that Move: Toolbox against Discrimination will facilitate the workshop. The programme will be moderated by Tracey Petersen of the Outreach Division, Department of Global Communications.
