Kidlit Against Anti-AAPI Racism
We are a group of Kidlit writers and publishing professionals who are horrified about the intense rise in anti-Asian violence after a year of xenophobic rhetoric and racist attacks. “The NYPD reported that hate crimes motivated by anti-Asian sentiment jumped 1,900% in New York City in 2020.” (Hate Crimes Against Asian Americans Are on the Rise. Many Say More Policing Isn’t the Answer, Time.com) We are running an auction to raise funds for two organizations that work against anti-asian racism and racism of all kind: Stop AAPI Hate & Hate is a Virus. Auction is open from February 26, 2021 @ 12AM EST until February 28, 2021 @ 11:59 PM EST.
Kidlit Against Anti-AAPI Racism Fundraiser (#KAAAR) includes items from bestselling & award winning authors & publishing professionals, such as signed books, query critiques, manuscript critiques, naming a book character, author virtual visits, calls with editors and agents, and more!
