“Reading books may not seem like the most direct way to fight anti-immigrant policies like child separation, but stories change us. If schools and communities are not working to change our perceptions of immigration, then I will have to do this work for the remainder of my life and so will generations after me. Yes, we can read to welcome. Let’s not raise another generation to accept family separation and children in cages.”
