Reading Is Resistance is collecting donations to give Own Voices books and custom education resources
Reading Is Resistance is partnering with Books Not Bars Oregon to support their “Prevent the COVID Slide” book drive.
The mission of Y.O.U.T.H.’s Books Not Bars Project is to “motivate, inspire, and empower youth, family, and educators to dismantle the school to prison pipeline by challenging existing systems and structures.” Because BIPOC communities in the United States disproportionately feel the education impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic due to systemic racism and oppression, Books Not Bars is currently seeking to fundraise for and procure books for summer reading.
$15-20 donation = 1 beautiful picture book
$5-10 donation = 1 early reading book
$10-15 donation = 1 middle reader book
