Being the daughter of a mother who was repeatedly judged and marginalized, Peggy will share her life experiences, research, and examples from practice related to the intended and unintended messages that early intervention and early childhood practitioners send when partnering with families who face intense systematic biases and barriers.  She will highlight how to ensure that implicit and explicit messages go beyond doing no harm to extending dignity aligned with civil rights, human diversity, and justice.
