HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. — An Indiana mom is using her voice, experience, and community connections to help educate people on how to talk about race with their kids.

Natalie Brake, a mother of three and the chair for the Hendricks County Alliance for Diversity, believes all parents should talk to their kids about race and its role in our society.

"You'll see that child who's in the supermarket and they'll say 'Why does that person's skin not match mine?' and instead of having an open, honest conversation with that child, we shush them," Brake said.

The Hendricks County Alliance for Diversity has teamed up with Child Care Answers to host "Talking to Children About Race."

The next virtual workshop is scheduled for 7 p.m. on July 14. You can register here.
