Join us for a candid conversation about parenting while navigating the complex issues of race, racism, and social justice. We’ll bravely explore the differences that exist in raising our White and Black children. This webinar will feature: Sherasa Thomas, Education Director for ADL Texoma. In her role she oversees all the anti-bias and anti-bullying training programs, builds community relationships and partners with educators to build equity into their school culture. Before coming to ADL, she has served as Education Director for an international nonprofit, public school administrator and as a classroom teacher. She lives in Dallas with her husband, where much of her “leisure time” is spent volunteering, reading, baking, bingeing home improvement shows and adjusting to the kids being in college. Jillian Bontke is the Education Director at ADL Austin where she coordinates all Central Texas education programs including No Place for Hate© efforts on over 350 campuses, and A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute anti-bias trainings. Jillian joined the ADL after working as a school counselor where she organized No Place for Hate® coalitions on multiple campuses as well as district implementation of the OLWEUS bully prevention program. Jillian is a Licensed Professional Counselor (L.P.C.) in the state of Texas and is passionate about helping students critically explore their own bias and empowering them to become allies in their communities.
