Why a Children’s Diversity and Justice Library at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church?

  • TVUUC's mission is to create a welcoming community that nurtures spiritual growth and challenges us to transform the world through acts of love and justice.

  • The Children's Diversity & Justice Library presents an opportunity for TVUUC to live this mission.

    • Books and reading are primary sources for growth and transformation in the world of children and youth.

    • However, most books don't reflect the diverse world of children's lived experiences.

    • Additionally, many books don't demonstrate the social justice, equity and compassion called for by our UU principles and values.

    • There are better choices, and we can provide access to them.
