We begin Season 3 by exploring the ways in which families can participate in the pursuit for racial and social justice.

Our parent guest this week is Deepa Iyer - a lawyer, writer, trainer, and racial justice advocate. She is currently the Strategic Advisor at Building Movement Project and Director of Solidarity Is, a project that provides trainings and resources in an effort to develop deep and lasting multiracial solidarity. She's also the mom of a 10 year old boy. 

In this episode, Deepa walks us through the Social Change Ecosystem Map that she developed for the Building Movement Project. The map introduces families to the many different roles and ways to engage in social and racial justice work.
