Books for Babes
Books for Babes is a literacy imitative aimed towards providing Feminist children’s books to at need communities, specifically teen parents, womxn’s shelters, and low income areas.
Books for Babes is a program created by Les Femmes Underground International (LEFUFF), a 501c3 Womxn’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 womxn 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 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 parents with feminist empowerment and career oriented books. Our end goal is to create a literacy fair that highlights and celebrates feminist children’s authors, feminist illustrators, and feminist children’s filmmakers. Our goals is to spread literacy and feminism to both parent 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.
