BADM's Statement in Support of Racial Equality and Inclusivity
The tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery--three names in a too long list of others--have prompted all of us at the Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) to reflect on our role in our community and the values that guide us. We create play-based experiences that help young children and their families explore and make sense of their world. Right now, as we see families hurting, across our region and the country, that work feels especially daunting and also more important than ever. We are committed to doing the work to be a more inclusive and responsive community organization-- to educating ourselves, to listening to the voices of our community, and to using our resources and power to tackle the inequities that divide and hurt us.
Please talk with your children about what’s going on in our world. Here are some wonderful books that can help you.
If you have found resources that have been helpful for your family in talking about these topics, please share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
