Conscious Parenting Time – Yolanda Williams and Crystal Stampley created a safe place for African American parents(only please!) to ask questions, seek advice, and share wins or frustrations.

Latina Parents Practicing NonViolence – Leslie Hillenbrand created an inclusive space for self-identifying Latinx parents and caregiversto gain community around nonviolent, conscious parenting practices and connect with like-minded people seeking to break intergenerational cycles of trauma and oppression for our Latinx or bicultural children. While there is an abundance of information available on positive parenting, our goal for this group and the spaces we, the co-founders of Latinx Parenting, hold is to provide these resources in a way that is consumable and relatable for the culture. This is a safe place for Latinx parents to ask questions, seek advice, and share celebrations and challenges. Parenting with nonviolence asks us to engage in reflection on our childhoods without shame, challenge our assumptions and thoughts about children, and understand brain development and historical and social impacts on our parenting.
