(BPRW) Helping Our Children Cope With Crisis

(Black PR Wire) The National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) continues to stand with our communities and allies as we demand justice in policing, equitable policies, and fair treatment of Black people in all sectors, systems, institutions, and domains. This work requires that we commit to the long-term engagement and advocacy needed to effect sustainable, systemic change. As you're busy engaging in the fight, we understand that many of you are also working to help your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other young people in your lives make sense of all they're seeing related to the righteous protests. This is on top of your efforts to acclimate them to the changes in their routine as a result of the pandemic. 


In alignment with our commitment to be part of the solution and provide resources, NBCDI is re-releasing our Helping Children Cope With Crisis activity book as a resource for families, caregivers, , places of worship, and civic groups. This unique activity book was developed specifically for Black families by NBCDI and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. 


We stand with you and are here to support you. If there is other information that would be helpful or other resources you'd like us to share, please email us at and let us know what you need.
