We are joining independent bookstores across the country from July 5th - 7th by donating 10% of our sales to RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services); they are working to advocate for and represent immigrants and refugees through the American legal system, and have a program to specifically provide representation to unaccompanied children coming over the border.
We are watching the horrors at the border and we may be feeling small and admittedly helpless. But we are neither of these things. We are part of an engaged, active, caring literary community of booklovers. We are involved in our local schools, business associations, and artistic communities.
If you can't visit us this weekend, we encourage you to donate directly to RAICES and spread the word with your friends and family. However small, we can all make a difference.
In love and solidarity,
- Kew & Willow Books
