FAN’s mission is to provide resources and a support network for parents. Recent events have rocked our worlds and we’re feeling many different emotions that are hard to harness and express. As parents, we’re always searching for ways to teach our children about the world around them. After all, we all want to teach our children to be kind, informed, empathetic, and anti-racist members of society.
There are so many resources available it can be overwhelming. FAN is committed to giving you a few resources on an ongoing basis that can help you facilitate thoughtful, anti-racist conversation with your children.

How do you make someone feel welcome with words/actions?
What might make someone feel unwelcome?
Sometimes people don't feel welcome because of what they think/look like/etc.
