Social Justice Story Time #2: Racial Justice and Taking Action

January 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join KIC and Rona Wolfe, kindergarten teacher and anti-bias educator, for a Social Justice Story Time. Through stories Rona will lead kid-friendly discussions about racial justice and address how kids can take big actions in small ways.  Attend one or both of these Social Justice Story Times as different books will be read at each session.

Through stories our kids will be empowered with an understanding and celebration of differences while recognizing the similarities and connections we all share.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. states, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” In this spirit we challenge your family to make a commitment to service over the next year. Paint how you will make change in our community on a 6×6” canvas square. Like a quilt, these squares will be combined into a traveling art exhibit displayed at locations throughout the area. Pick up an art kit for each of your children anytime January 4-22. Locations and pick-up instructions will be provided following registration.

Rona Kader Wolfe has been a kindergarten teacher for 28 years. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from UW-Milwaukee, where she is currently working towards a master’s degree in Community Engagement and Education. Rona has served both Milwaukee’s Indigenous community and its Jewish community as a kindergarten teacher at the Indian Community School and most recently at Milwaukee Jewish Day School.

Purpose: Celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. as we guide our children to share compassion and respect the dignity of one another. And, to provide our children with the opportunity to do what they were born to do: LOVE!

Impact: Children will learn they can be true leaders and that their little hands can make a big impact on others by spreading Dr. King’s message of equality and love.
