Event! Inclusive Reads for Inclusive Schools Fall 2021

event inclusive read school Oct 13, 2021
Trans Awareness Week we are celebrating inclusive book readings in Nova Scotia elementary schools

This past February 2021 we had 3,840+ students participate in our event!

We are proud that all books align with the curriculum and are age appropriate, reflecting the fair and equitable society we are trying to achieve in Nova Scotia. We pride our events in inspiring intentional ally leadership skills, citizenship, and contributing to the quality and sustainability of our learning environments, communities, and society.

 If you haven't registered your classroom or school yet, you can do it here.

We read to give visibility, combat stigma and educate inclusively to support transgender and non-binary students everywhere. Visibility sparks inclusion. Visibility makes safer space for everyone. 

Change the narrative -- Change lives!
