New Year, New Resolution: Are You Up For the Challenge?

by We Need Diverse Books

New Year’s Resolutions are tough. Believe us, we know.

IG-100-pledgeWell, this year’s going to be different.

Why?

Because this year, we’re going to do something different. This year, we’re going change the world.

How?

By pledging to read, 5, 10, 15, 25, or even 100 DIVERSE books.

Books where people of color can be first-page HEROES rather than second-class citizens. Books in which LGBTQIA characters can represent social CHANGE rather than social problems. And books where people with disabilities can be just…people.

By reading these stories, we can promote compassion and understanding, instead of prejudice.

Let’s change the hearts and minds of our generation by promoting diversity in our libraries, classrooms, and bookstores. And as a result, let’s change the world we live in.

Now, THAT’S a resolution everyone can get behind.
