Latinx Guide is Part of Bigger ‘Develop Talk and Take Action’ Campaign
WASHINGTON, DC – Nickelodeon has partnered with KID Museum and Hispanic Heritage Foundation to create an Anti-Hate guide for Latinx, focusing on parents and educators. The Anti-Hate Latinx guide is part of Nickelodeon’s Talk & Take Action: Anti-Hate Guides series, which seeks to empower kids with tools, information, and inspiration to help them navigate their world.
In addition to the Anti-Hate Latinx guide with KID Museum and HHF, Nickelodeon developed Countering Antisemitism, Stopping AAPI Hate, Dismantling Anti-Blackness, and Combatting LGBTQ+ Discrimination as part of the Talk & Take Action: Anti-Hate Guides series.
“We are thrilled to partner with a worldwide brand for children and parents who also have a strong social conscious in Nickelodeon along with our friends at KID Museum in developing a guide for educators, parents and children to increase the understanding, appreciation and respect for the Latinx community,” said Jose Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of Hispanic Heritage Foundation. “We understand the importance of breaking the cycle of discrimination and hate in our world and any movement starts with youth, but also the adults that influence them. We applaud Nickelodeon’s vision and leadership in offering these resources.”
Nickelodeon’s Talk & Take Action: Anti-Hate Guides series were co-authored by best-in-class organizations to provide adults, who interact with children ages 8-12, as a primer on effective conversations on the topics. Each unit includes a brief history of discrimination against the community, which is why creating an actionable, step-by-step guides, is so important and aligned with HHF’s and KID’s missions.
“We urgently need to give kids better tools to move the needle as culture makers and changemakers of the future,” said Cara Lesser, Founder and Executive Director of KID Museum. “That’s why we’re proud to team up with Nickelodeon and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation as part of Nickelodeon’s ‘Talk and Take Action Campaign,’ to give teachers and families tangible, hands-on ways to combat hate and promote social change.”
