Our Mission is a Matter of the Heart
Who is Reading Revolutionaries for?
Anyone who reads is a revolutionary.
Our community isn’t exclusive in any form. We highlight marginalized and other under-represented communities because all youth deserve to be seen. There has always been a lack of diversity in books for youth mostly because these books fly under the radar or don’t receive a deserved acknowledgment.
Reading Revolutionaries boxes can be well-loved by and expand the perspectives and imagination of all readers.
It has been proven youth exposure to diverse stories, experiences and perspectives promotes respect and empathy for differences and all groups of people.
Our brand doesnt just pick randomly books with diverse rep and ship them to folks:
We build relationship with schools to expand inclusivity of Lit in classrooms
We assist with Equity PD trainings at the Elem school level
We build relationship with community centers and donate books and subscriptions
We provide resources and “do the work” door openings for anti-racist homeschoolers, unschoolers , parents and village leaders.
We go beneath the surface of representation because the nuance of identity is important (as is understanding all rep isnt good rep).
Our brand assists with the blooming anti-racist adults so they can positively impact the blooming of anti-racist children.
Solely buying diverse books is basic allyship.
We are expanding the community of co-conspirators.
We are doing this work because books save lives.
Education activism exists within and outside of schools.
We believe all children are readers if they find the right book for them. Our eldest child is an interested but hesitant reader, and the quest to boost his enthusiasm for trying chapter books also propelled us to cultivate this business.
We look forward to being in community with you!
