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 learned that when you see someone alone, you should go make them feel better and make a new friend.”
