THIRTY MILLION CHILDREN rely on school for food. Responding to the needs of kids during these school closures, Save the Children US and No Kid Hungry have a new fund #SAVEWITHSTORIES to support food banks, and mobile meal trucks, and community feeding programs with funds to do what they do best—and also—with educational toys, books, and worksheets to make sure brains are full, as well as bellies.

If you can manage a one time gift of $10, please text SAVE to 20222. If another amount would work better for you, please visit our website—http://ow.ly/gxuV30qq1nf. There is no maximum and there is no minimum—together we will rise and together we can help.

Thank you and stay safe. XX

“We are all liberated by this proclamation . . . Everybody is liberated. The white man is liberated, the black man is liberated.” –Frederick Douglass

While the Emancipation Proclamation was issued on January 1, 1863 by President Lincoln, it wasn’t until nearly two years later, on June 19th, 1865, that the Black men and women enslaved in Galveston, TX were finally freed from slavery.

Today, 155 years later, we celebrate Juneteenth and the resilience of Black people and culture. We encourage everyone to honor this day of freedom (whether virtually or at a socially distanced event), and let us not forget that we all have a role to play in the fight to dismantle systematic racism in America.

A Statement from ABRAMS Books

Black lives matter. Black words matter. Black voices matter. Police brutality, state-sanctioned violence, and systemic racism and biases are abhorrent and need to be called out and resisted. We at ABRAMS stand in solidarity with our Black readers, authors, illustrators, booksellers, educators, librarians, and colleagues.

Our company mission is to strive to be inclusive in our publishing and our organization, and to celebrate vibrant voices, cultures, and ideas. We recognize that we have a lot of work to do to hold ourselves accountable to this mission.

Toward these ends, we are committed to the following course of actions:
Make and match employee donations to organizations and nonprofits fighting for equality and social justice

- Regularly spotlight Black, Brown and POC authors, illustrators, and gatekeepers involved across our industry and honor their work on our social media platforms
- Continue to diversify our publishing programs
- Create ongoing internal discussion and consciousness-raising around racism and implicit bias, including an anti-racist book club with books provided by the company to all participating employees and procured from Black-owned bookstores

This is only the beginning, and we will build upon these steps to make sure we are living the words of our mission statement every day.
