Teens can feel helpless in today’s society but we all can do something to stand up to injustice. As our country rallies against racism, upheaval is a necessary consequence. What can teens do to promote change? Start with the library’s Anti-Racism booklist which includes This Book is Anti-Racist: 20 Lessons on How to Wake Up, Take Action and Do the Work. Author Tiffany Jewel describes her book as “written for the young person who doesn’t know how to speak up to the racist adults in their life, which will give them the language and ability to understand racism and a drive to undo it.”
Then get tips on how teens can take action and support the anti-racist movement by reading this great article in Teen Vogue: How to Be an Activist When You’re Unable to Attend Protests.
“Social change work requires that we commit for the long haul. In the end, what matters is that we work toward the world we want to see each and every day, and that we participate in ways that work for us. In solidarity!”Amnesty International
