    Weʼve raised £11,455 to help distribute free books that fight for racial justice

    Funded on Wednesday, 30th September 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The first step in the fight for racial justice is to educate yourself on inequity.

    Let's come together to support the incredible Newham Bookshop in their distribution of anti-racist literature for grown-ups and children. Every pound you donate will help to get free copies of the award-winning books Superior by Angela Saini and Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge to people who are interested to learn. Alongside the groundbreaking work of Saini and Eddo-Lodge, Newham Bookshop will also be distributing free bundles of children's books that discuss racism and power.

    The only condition is that you don't only read the books, but you share them, discuss them, and join the fight to make the world a more fair place.

    If you want to request a free copy of Superior, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race or a bundle of children's books that help to discuss race, power and privilege, please reach out to the Newham Bookshop.

    This wouldn't be possible without the inspirational Angela Saini, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Newham Bookshop and 4th Estate.
