We Need Diverse Books
The cool kids over at We Need Diverse Books are running a fundraising campaign on indiegogo. They are planning to use the money raised to fund a variety of initiatives focused on providing kids of all ages greater access to diverse books. The planned projects include developing educational kits, bringing diverse authors to schools and starting a kidlit diversity festival. All of this sounds awesome, and I cannot wait to see what starts to roll out in the coming months. They're offering a bunch of sweet perks too if you need some instant gratification.
If you believe it's important that the books our kids have access to reflect the diversity of our world (and who doesn't), please consider backing this important campaign.
