The Next Reading Revolution

Speakers

Equitable Representation in Books as the Catalyst for Change. Literacy has often been called a civil right. Not only is it a right, it’s a responsibility. Beyond ensuring the opportunity to read, the next equity frontier is content. What are our children reading and how does that shape their narratives? Lack of representation not only narrows one’s view of the world, it constitutes a form of self-erasure, imposing lasting harm. Join us to talk about fighting oppression through representation.
