As I type this we are just hours away from the last voting day in the United States. To say the stress is high is an understatement. We will go to bed tonight unsure about what tomorrow will hold, but we will also go to bed tonight with a firm belief that we told our kids the truth about racism in American and we told them that one of the best ways to engage in the process is through voting.
We are going to host an election night party with the kids that will include an envious spread of food, games, education, and love. We will not have an episode this week, but we encourage everyone to listen to our VOTE episode. It will help start the conversation about democracy with your family. We have also created a few additional resources for you and your family.
