Nurturing BLACK: Baby’s Lived Experience as Cultural Kinship

Build your capacity and skills in mentoring non-BIPOC expectant parents raising Black or biracial babies. In today’s complex society, it’s not enough to just love one’s child.

Caregivers must learn how to reassure confidence in their child as they navigate society’s expectation of being Black in the US. Join our four-week virtual group mentorship experience led by Ayisha Elliott to learn these skills and more for your work supporting families living a multi-racial experience.
