Welcome to the Brewer Center

The Senator Stephen M. Brewer Center for Civic Learning and Community Engagement promotes positive social change and healthier, more vibrant communities through innovative programming and partnerships that benefit our community and Mount Wachusett Community College.

Dialogue – Talking to Children about Racism

The Brewer Center and the MWCC Community are focused on finding actionable steps we can begin taking to change the cycle of racism, intolerance, and for many, the status quo. As such, we have held a number of discussions to listen and learn from each other as we move forward. The recorded discussion below is focused on how to speak to children about racism. More resources for discussion and education can be found on this page The Mount Blog: Resources for Discussion and Education on Racial Issues. We are updating this collection of resources continually.
