Over 5 years strong, Books and Breakfast is used to cultivate an environment that promotes connectivity and open dialogue surrounding social justice issues, political theory, and educational development.

By providing positive images and informative literature, we are increasing awareness and literacy while fostering skills needed to actively combat issues that impact our communities.

These issues are present worldwide and have undeniable connections to our international partners in the fight for justice. Awareness, healthy breakfast and lots of hugs; Books and Breakfast is designed to feed mind, body, and spirit.
