Help Teachers Diversify Their Classroom Libraries

To learn more visit!

In these trying times, many people are looking for ways to fight racism in America.

My name is Ali Peltz and I’ve always loved books. Recently, I read "75 Things White People Can Do For Racial Justice ." The article states, "kids of every race need to know American history and be exposed to people from different races, religions, and countries." This inspired me to pledge money toward buying books with people-of-color as the protagonists/heroes in order to give them to the educators in my life. 

Educators are excited for the opportunity to make their classroom libraries more diverse AND many people are interested in pledging money.

I started this GoFundMe to collect money, which will be used to provide books to teachers in order to diversify their libraries. 100% of the donations will be used to buy books that feature people-of-color (POC) heroes and protagonists. The average cost of a book may be only $13, but its value is priceless, as it will be read by hundreds of kids in the coming years. 

Thank you for considering donating to Help Teachers Diversify Their Classroom Libraries. It is so important that classroom libraries are filled with diverse reading material, and that all students can see themselves as heroes in a story.
