Helping Kids Rise promotes literacy, education, and social justice awareness through diverse children's books, positive images, and resources for parents and educators. These are a few resources we count on to help us fulfill our mission.
Social Justice Books
Social Justice Books is a project of Teaching for Change, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide teachers and parents with the tools to create schools where students learn to read, write and change the world.
1000 Black Girl Books Resource Guide
This resource guide was created from the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign led by Marley Dias who has now collected over 9000 books. The guide includes some of those books that have been catalogued into an easy to find database. This information here is appropriate for youth, parents, educators, schools, and libraries.
EmbraceRace is a multiracial community of parents, teachers, experts, and other caring adults who support each other to meet the challenges that race poses to our children, families, and communities.
Teaching For Change
Teaching for Change provides teachers and parents with the tools to create schools where students learn to read, write and change the world.
Teaching for Change operates from the belief that schools can provide students the skills, knowledge and inspiration to be citizens and architects of a better world — or they can fortify the status quo. By drawing direct connections to real world issues, Teaching for Change encourages teachers and students to question and re-think the world inside and outside their classrooms, build a more equitable, multicultural society, and become active global citizens.
Black Children's Book Week
Black Children's Book Week is a way to combat any negative ideology Black children receive through media/society and instead give the children a collective showering of love and celebration.
