The Story of Wordcrafters, Chapter 11

Chapter 11: It’s always darkest before the dawn

(or at least that’s what they tell us)

During a pandemic that appeared relentless and endless, in 2021 we reached out harder than ever to the most vulnerable, creating programming for LGBTQIA2S+ teens.

Rainbow Reads book club began in partnership with Eugene Public Library, funded through its first two years by grants from Lane Arts Council with support from the City of Eugene and Drinking Gourd Elementary School. Initially held via Zoom, the library packaged up amazing book boxes and shipped them to participants until we could return in person again.

Connecting with the people most in need of writing (and reading) community is only possible with financial support from amazing, generous donors like you, {{Constituent First Name}}. Grants often help to get things started. But it’s the individual donors who keep our programs running. 

Will you ensure marginalized voices are heard?
