Why this work matters?

Your stories will make the world better in 100 years. An inclusive and empathetic world is our gift to the next generation of storytellers.

10% or so curriculum books for K-12 are from diverse authors. Over 70% children’s and young adult books published in the United States feature white characters or animals as leads.

Many people – especially children from diverse backgrounds do not see themselves reflected in media.

Our core mission is to create an inclusive platform and space for children so they have a sense of belonging and are inspired to live creative lives.
