**update 2022: another $60 donated
*update! We were able to give $50 to the fund! Thank you to everyone who participated in the fundraiser by selling or buying!*
100% of my net proceeds from 6/4-6/14 will be given to The Conscious Kid’s Anti-Racist Children’s Books Education Fund. I am participating in Kidizen’s community fundraiser in which they are matching donations up to $10,000.
To counter racist socialization, structural racism, and racial bias, experts recommend acknowledging and naming race and racism with children as early and as often as possible (Baron & Banaji; Derman-Sparks).
Children’s books are one of the most effective and practical tools for initiating these critical conversations with children, and can also be used to model what it means to resist and disrupt oppression.
Donations made here will go to a dedicated fund for The Conscious Kid to get children’s books from their list of “41 Children’s Books to Support Conversations on Race, Racism, and Resistance” into classrooms across the country.
Thank you. Black lives matter. 🖤
