As you may know, Restless Books recently became a nonprofit to solidify our Mission to champion diverse global voices, immigrant culture, and extraordinary writing from unexpected viewpoints. At a time when borders are closing down, walls are going up, and people who look or speak differently are met with fear and suspicion, we believe reading and publishing fearlessly is a vital act of resistance. Now that we’ve become a nonprofit, you—our readers and supporters—play an essential role in keeping reading global!
Nonprofit fundraising takes time to establish, and there's a long lag between becoming eligible to apply for grants and tax-exempt donations, and receiving the funds. So in the meantime, we've launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign: Reading is Resistance.
We hope you'll join in and support! But don't take it just from us—some of our wonderful authors and fans from around the world have chimed in for our campaign video:
Check out the campaign at Indiegogo, and please join us in the reading resistance!
