...Four storytellers representing various races, ethnicities, gender identities, expressions and ages (from 14 - 16 years old). How are we really doing as parents, educators, mentors, leaders, and family members? Do we know how to engage in healthy, trauma-informed dialogue? Are we willing to hold space for REAL conversations with teenagers and let them speak truth to power - even if WE are the power that needs to be challenged? ...Mental health, pronouns, Black Lives Matter, politics, parenting, schools and more! Watch or listen in with a young person you care about and make time to talk with them about what you – and they – think!
