It's Our Birthday & We're Launching Our Patreon

Today, we're celebrating two birthdays -- Reading Is Resistance & co-founder Zapoura Newton-Calvert. Coincidence? Definitely not.

Five years ago, Zapoura co-founded the organization on her birthday kicking it off with a fundraiser to put own voices books in Little Free Libraries in North Portland. And now the project has grown and grown. So much so that we are launching our own PATREON! We hope you'll take a look and show us some birthday love by joining our community of supporters, allies, co-conspirators, and revolutionaries!

Look What We've Done So Far!

I took some time today to go through the analytics of our site and our work this year. And what I found was so exciting and motivating!

We Continue Together!

This is just the beginning. We are finding our groove, and we are connecting with teachers, parents, organizations, and youth! This Patreon will help us to continue our work in community and increase our ability to serve more community groups, teachers, and kids with more resources and presence & less precarity. JOIN TODAY & BE PART OF THE MAGIC!
