In support of Black Lives Matter

The Jane Addams Peace Association deeply honors and supports the Black Lives Matter movement and protests. Our vision of ‘a future where people actively work to dismantle injustices and build a more peaceful, equitable world’ is unfolding today! The work will be ongoing. Below find the  voices of educators, authors, and activists of color from whom  we can listen and learn regarding children’s literature at this time of transformative change.

(Thank you to Reading While White for compiling this list of own voices resources.)
