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.
