We are In This Together ∞ We believe that everyone should be able to imagine themselves when they pick up a book or watch a movie. Sadly, today’s media doesn’t reflect everyone. We’re out to change that. We package books and films to create more diversity in media. We highlight the stories of all children and young adults, including gay, black, girls, transgender, and more. Beyond just highlighting them, we want them to be the stars of the stories we create, inspiring others just like them to be who they are – with confidence and power. THE VOICES THAT TELL OUR STORIES ↓ Our writers are as diverse as our characters. They have a sense of humor, humility, perseverance and stamina. But mostly, they have much needed, unusual perspectives that show up in their words. One writer is the head of African-American Studies at the College of Charleston; another is the production partner of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman who produced the award-winning film, Capote; and many are influencers in their field and the world. Their voices are important not only for telling their stories, but for inspiring readers to see themselves in ways they never thought possible.
