The Problem

The main characters in most young adult books are NOT diverse. They're usually straight, white, able-bodied men.

The Solution

Representation matters. What young people see around them positively or negatively shapes their expectations for themselves and for each other.
Everyone's stories deserve to be heard. By reading and discussing books about underrepresented groups, you'll fight back against this marginalization.

Host the first meeting of your Diversity Book Club using our list of suggested books or choose your own.
