Reading to End Racism (RER) is a unique intergenerational racial justice literacy program that helps plant the seeds for the elimination of racism among youth from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Through books, personal stories, and activities RER readers seek to stimulate insightful conversations about racism and discrimination.
 
 RER’s goal is to empower students to stand up and speak out in the face of injustice whenever and wherever they encounter it.  We aim to provide students and teachers alike with the tools necessary to facilitate productive conversations about racism, bullying, and discrimination.  We believe that an enhanced understanding of social and racial justice issues will promote peaceful relationships among students and will create a safe, nurturing environment in which every student can thrive.
Trained RER Volunteer Readers have the opportunity to read to children in elementary and middle school about issues that matter, and plant the seeds for a more inclusive and socially aware generation in Boulder County.  The RER volunteer community is a strong support network of individuals who care deeply about racial justice and diversity issues.
