Books for Babes

  • Books for Babes is a literacy imitative aimed towards providing Feminist children’s books to at need communities, specifically teen moms, women’s shelters, and low income areas.

  • Books for Babes is a program created by Les Femmes Underground International (LEFUFF) , a 501c3 Women’s Community Arts Program. LEFUFF, focuses on travelling to different low income communities and providing workshops aimed at body wellness, female empowerment, as well as, career resources and support to women and (* female identified individuals) in the arts.

  • Our initiative is to bring literacy to at need communities in the Southern California region, specifically Boyle Heights and the San Fernando areas. These communities struggle with single parent house holds with limited income and scare resources. We hope to bring the children in these regions empowerment and support via donations that help motivate young kids to take on any challenge they may encounter.

Our Goals

  • Our goal is to raise $25,000, so we can provide each child with a tote bag filled with feminist books, as well as, provide their mothers with feminist empowerment and career oriented books. Our end goal is to create a literacy fair that highlights and celebrates female children’s authors, female illustrators, and female children’s filmmakers. Our goals is to spread literacy and feminism to both mother and child as a way to help empower and motivate both individuals.

How to Support

  • In order to make this possible we need community support to help spread the word, volunteer their time, or make either a one time or monthly donation in order to raise funds for this effort.
