Spotlight on: Atlanta!
Attention, Atlanta! We’re here to help you make the most of these last precious days of summer! Before fall takes over, we’re throwing the spotlight on your city — we’ve uncovered four upcoming events that you just can’t miss! Read on for your Atlanta guide to the final precious weeks of summer.
Fri, Aug 26 at 6pm - 11pm
Intown Stars Gymnastics
Parent Night Out is a monthly event at Intown Stars that gives parents a chance to drop the kids off at the gym and take an evening to themselves on the last Friday of every month. PNO starts at 6pm and ends with pickup at 11pm. The night includes lots of fun games and bonding, pizza, and a movie. Bring friends or siblings, pillows and blankets, a water bottle and positive attitude. Some kids like to bring PJs to change into, and it makes bedtime at home a little easier, too.
$25 per student / $20 for siblings

Wed, Aug 24 at 7:30pm - 9pm
This is the first meeting of a new group designed to support the ongoing development of white parents of white and multiracial children who are seeking to unlearn and dismantle white supremacy within their families, schools, neighborhoods and faith communities. Parents of color are welcome to attend and participate if desired, however the aim of this group is for white parents who have an expressed desire to develop tools and skills to teach themselves and their children how to fight systematic racism. It will be initially facilitated by Shannon Gaggero, author of the blog “A Striving Parent,” and Elizabeth Anderson, Executive Director of Charis Circle, with the expectation that facilitation will rotate as the group grows. If you have ideas, questions, concerns in advance of the first meeting, please email Elizabeth@chariscircle.org.
