Join us for a reading from of a children’s book from our Little Lantern Library: Intersection Allies: We Make Room for All written by Chelsea Johnson, LaToya Council, and Carolyn Choi and Illustrated by Ashley Seil Smith.
In this book we are introduced to a group of nine friends from diverse backgrounds. Each character’s story is used to explain how children’s safety concerns are shaped by their intersecting identities, such as class, sexuality, dis/ability, race, religion and citizenship – what is known in academic and activist circles as “intersectionality.”
