Rethinking Race in the Midwest
Our mission is to encourage families to rethink race and the role it plays in our segregated region. Using children’s literature, featuring diverse characters, we will support families with young children (birth-9) to start and strengthen early conversations about race and diversity.
All Are Welcome!
Starting with Stories respects persons from all faith traditions, as well as those who do not have a religious affiliation. We are grateful to religious organizations that generously offer Starting with Stories a venue and support for our work, but we remain—always and in all spaces—open to a diversity of beliefs.
