What are Social Justice Books?

 ….books that have been selected by young people of color to reflect the diverse and multicultural world that we live in. Books that will allow ALL students to see themselves in the pages; books that communicate to ALL students that their voices & their stories matter—that they matter; books that spark difficult, but necessary conversations and affect change; books that help promote empathy and kindness and invite us to look at the world through a different lens; books that inspire students to fall in love with reading again or for the first time.

 

The first meeting is currently scheduled for September 11 – See Ms. Monegato for more details.
