How do we deal with the growing pains of rapid cultural and ethnic change in our country? This practical resource helps parents and teachers of children, youth, and young adults navigate conversations about cultural differences and diversity, so they can raise up individuals committed to respectful civic engagement.
The ABCs of Diversity equips parents, teachers, and community leaders to have intergenerational and intercultural conversations about the differences between us. In addition to discussions of race, intercultural dialogue involves understanding our differences related to political affiliation, gender, class, religion, ability, nationality, and sexual orientation. Such intercultural dialogues can support communities as they work for the mutual well-being of all. This book includes specific resources and activities for persons of various ages that parents and community leaders can employ to encourage compassion and empathy. An educational and practical resource for parents, teachers, community leaders, ministry personnel, human resources directors, and librarians.
