As part of the UN Decade for People of African Descent (PAD), we would like to share ideas about the educational opportunities of Black and Afrodiasporic children,
as well as the political participation of their parents. Parents, Afro-diasporic organizations, activists and policy representatives will come together with other stakeholders, to talk about participation opportunities, migrant parenting, digital literacy for Black children and youth,
but also to debate about policy needs for Black communities.
