Is for Ally, Advocate, Anti-Racist, Ancestors, and Assembly 

Using simple explanations and appealing illustrations in a familiar A-to-Z format, The Young Activist's Dictionary of Social Justice will teach kids the new vocabulary of change. 

Vetted by an anti-bias, anti-racism educator, this essential new resource is packed with easily understandable definitions of timely concepts. Each beautifully designed spread represents a letter and provides concise, age-appropriate definitions for 10 or more terms, with subject matter spanning issues like racial justice, climate change, gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, income disparity, voter engagement, and immigration. In addition to information, the pages are also full of inspiration: Bite-sized bios accompany key terms, illuminating the stories of justice advocates who got involved with a cause at a young age. Infographics and sidebars bring complementary concepts to life. And with the rich resource section in the back, kids can read more about how to take action on the cause that’s meaningful to them.

Read on, and let’s work together for a more equal world for all.
