LiteratureDiversified is a Youth-Led Non-Profit founded in 2023 with the purpose of advocating for racial equity through diversifying school curricula and by working to solve America's racial disparities centering around education. Since its founding, LiteratureDiversified has developed original curricula and multiple diversity, equity, & inclusion resources collectively displaying over 40 lesson plans, 2 book lists, and 7 diverse research collections that have been implemented in 32 partner classrooms across the world, impacting over 720 students.
"LiteratureDiversified has transformed the engagement in my classroom amongst minority students. Many of my Hispanic, African-American, and Asian students now relate to our course materials in ways they did not before. Students who once showed little interest in course readings now stay after class to grapple with complex ideas and thoughts that stem from the perspectives of people who they identify with."
- Anna Y. English Teacher, Partner Educator with LiteratureDiversified
"As a first generation American whose parents were immigrants, I empathize with my students who feel misrepresented by the materials they read in class. LiteratureDiversified's resources have helped me develop a more inclusive classroom for my students, specifically through their webinars, diverse novel lists, and curated lesson plans."
- Martin O. AP Government and Macroeconomics Teacher, Partner Educator with LiteratureDiversified
"LiteratureDiversified has developed a platform for minority students to feel like they have a voice. Through publishing my essay in Stories of Our Youth, I feel empowered to continue sharing my voice, knowing others around me face the same struggles as I do."
- Gavrielle K. High School Student

If you are an educator, parent, or student, these resources can be accessed and implemented across curriculums to diversify the narratives taught in education.
