START A VOICE OF WITNESS BOOK CLUB

Voice of Witness books amplify the voices of people impacted by injustice and foster thoughtful, empathy-based critical inquiry and understanding of the crises faced by marginalized communities.

Book clubs are useful tools for engaging and interacting with these texts and the issues they highlight. These clubs can take many different forms; community or classroom, local or national, in-person or virtual. Even utilizing a hashtag across social media can help spark wider conversations about a specific book.
