NA FOR CHANGE Children's Book Drive
April 10th - May 8th, 2021
ABOUT THIS EVENT
NA For Change is holding a book drive to ensure that young readers in the Pittsburgh area have access to books that reflect their own identity and prepare them for life in a diverse world. There is currently a dismal lack of representation in children’s books, with more representation for animals and other non-human characters than all types of racial and ethnic minorities combined. To combat this, they will be collecting books that feature characters with a diverse range of backgrounds and identities.
The book drive is inspired by the mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors analogy for books—that they can serve as reflections of ourselves, give us insight into the experiences of others, and serve as gateways into new worlds. Every child deserves to see themselves and their peers represented in the books they read, and NA For Change hopes to foster a positive relationship between children and their identities through this drive.
We are delighted to be partnering with NA For Change for this book drive. Please click the button below to browse their book wish list.
