Stories of other people's lives can impact our own by helping us better understand our world. This is why it is important that people of color see their own identities and experiences reflected in literature. Providing People of Color with literature that reflects their identities and experiences helps boost self-esteem, social-emotional functioning, and cultural pride.
Our ME In Books campaign promotes reading in communities of color by providing books featuring characters of color.
We need at least 500 books by March 31, 2020! You can help us reach our goal by donating books from our wishlist or by donating your own new or gently used books. The pick-up / drop-off information, or our shipping address is here.
