    This will be a space for white music makers and educators to:

    • talk about the role of race in our lives and the world around us in the present, and historically
    • practice the ways we will talk about race and justice with children
    • brainstorm and build our skills for engaging and interrupting when racial incidents occur and practice, practice, practice
    • brainstorm about how we can use our music and access to heal racism
    • support one another as we strive to share access, resources and build equitable, loving community of solidarity with our colleagues of color as white folks making children's music.
    • we will work together to identify your other goals, hopes and purposes when we convene

    We're a group of white children’s music makers working to heal racism. Join us!

    We meet the first Wednesday of each month, at 8:00pm ET online.

    As part of the Affinity Group initiative during the 2020 Annual Conference, Ruth Pelham and Kim Wallach offered a session to explore how best to make members’ “bodies of work” available for the next generation. Over 30 people attended and there was lively discussion, creative ideas and a wish to continue the discussion beyond this single meeting. On the second Thursday of each month, the conversation will pick up where it left off!

    This group will share information and skills, give and receive support as we explore ways to ensure our work lives on in the world. Focus areas will include legal, emotional, technology, financial, creativity and other issues that emerge. The group will continue to meet on a regular basis as it decides for as long as there is demand and interest.

    This group is open to CMN Members only. Here’s the link to join. If you are interested and weren’t able to attend the session in October, you can watch the session recording to catch up.

    We meet the first Thursday of each month, at 12:30pm ET online.

    For more information including notes from the session, contact Ruth Pelham or Kim Wallach.
