YWCA Bucks County to host Reading to End Racism Event
Local organization partners with Barnes and Nobles

Bucks County, PA – On Saturday February 24, 2018 join YWCA Bucks County staff and community members at the Barnes and Nobles located in the Neshaminy Mall from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for an afternoon of activities promoting our racial justice programs, including one of our hallmark programs, Reading to End Racism.

This program strives to engage and educate participants on a discussion about race, and racism and how individuals can work to eliminate racism in their everyday lives. This program serves elementary school youth and women’s reading and discussion groups.

The day’s activities will include:

• A visit and read-a-loud of All the Colors of the Earth by award-winning author and illustrator, Sheila Hamanaka, who is best known for her books on peace and multiculturalism.
• Arts and Crafts activities and event stations for children of all ages.
