About the event
As parents, we are responsible for teaching our children about the world. We teach them about the world. We teach them how to cross the street. We teach them about how the world works. We teach them about the birds and the bees. Now as our kids go out in the world on their own, it's time for a new talk.
Of the many conversations you should have with your children, talking to them about how to interact with the police is probably one of the most important conversations a parent can have. Every 23 seconds, a child or teen in this country is arrested. Furthermore, this could be a life or death matter. Over the past five years, approximately 100 children have been fatally shot by police.
Having "The Real Talk", is a child safety workshop for parents. This workshop will give parents techniques that will help prepare their children for interactions with law enforcement. Valentine's Day Campaign and Peace Economy Project will host specialists in child psychology, law enforcement, and communications. In this day and age, children need to learn how to handle themselves when they are around law enforcement. This workshop will talk about how children can protect themselves legally, emotionally and physically.
