Reading to End Racism

A- A A+

RER logoReading to End Racism (RER) is designed to engage students through interactive presentations led by trained volunteer readers. Students have an opportunity to listen to literature, personal stories and insights regarding racism, participate in discussions about racism, and gain reinforcement about the power of literature. The program has been reviewed and approved by the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). 98% of students reported that because of lessons learned in RER, they will be respectful to all people.

“I loved the way you read to us. It put the topic in my head and got me thinking.”

Volunteers Needed for Upcoming RER Virtual Events

We’re excited to bring RER to local elementary schools in a virtual format, and we need enthusiastic volunteers to help as readers.

We need volunteers who are comfortable with video conferencing technology and committed to our mission to eliminate racism.  Spanish language ability is a big plus!
