The Power of Story - Building Equitable Bookshelves

Spirit of a Dream image

There's nothing more powerful than a story to connect us, to help us understand ourselves and each other, and to build empathy.

The Power of Story initiative highlights books featuring characters and stories from groups whose identities and lived experiences have been suppressed and excluded from mainstream narratives. Sharing these books with young people shows them that everyone's story deserves to be told and will help them understand and expand their world.
