Voices on the Future of Childhood: Diversity, Belonging, and Racial Justice

For our Voices on the Future of Childhood series, we have been inviting experts to write about how we might be proactive in mapping out ideal futures for children and families—so far, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, given the vicious impacts of racism that we have all witnessed, protested, and mourned over in the past several weeks, Part 6 of this series focuses on race and racism. 

We asked experts to share their perspectives on these issues and highlight the work they are doing in their respective fields.

What is your vision for the future of childhood?
What are you doing in your professional capacity to achieve that vision?
Who (individuals, organizations, communities, sectors, etc.) needs to do what to achieve that vision?
