Words to Act On

During the inauguration, on the day of the Women's March, and for the four years after, Bookshop Santa Cruz wants to be a place for all people and all perspectives to find education, inspiration and empathy through books. We are calling this effort "Words to Act On" as a way to convene reading lists, community reads and partnerships with local nonprofits that bring our community together around words that we can act on and that we can discuss. Check back for updates as we add resources to this list.
