MORE ON THIS FUND & WHERE DONATIONS GO:
“Our Anti-Racist Children’s Book Education Fund provides children around the country access to books and resources that support important conversations about race, racism, and resilience. These books affirm students from Black and Brown communities, while also empowering youth from all backgrounds to take action against racism.
This fund has raised enough support to be able to provide thousands of public elementary schools across the country with anti-racist children’s books. If you are an educator, administrator, school counselor, or librarian at a Title I elementary school, you are eligible to apply to receive a set of these books for free. While we are prioritizing Title 1 schools for free access, we encourage schools not designated as Title I to purchase these books as a starting point for addressing inequitable racial gaps within their curriculum.
Within 8 hours of launching this application, over 3,000 educators in all 50 states applied to receive anti-racist children’s books for their schools. We will be sending books to all of them! This shows the massive demand for anti-racist books and resources in education and the phenomenal commitment of educators across the country to engage with issues of race with their students. If we continue to receive support for the fund, we will be able to open this form back up again and serve additional schools. Thanks to everyone for your incredible support of this work.
