Reading to End Racism (RER) is a racial justice program that uses trained volunteers to read with children in the classroom at school-wide visits in Boulder County. Age-appropriate books, personal stories, and engaging activities stimulate an insightful conversation about discrimination. This dialogue with students and teachers empowers individuals to promote peaceful relationships and supports a nurturing environment in which every student can thrive. RER has reached more than 24,000 students since 2011.
