We are part of an engaged, active, caring literary community of booklovers. We are involved in our local schools, business associations, and artistic communities. We are involved in our local and national communities. We are integral cultural institutions and have an opportunity, an obligation, to assert what a culture of words and books and imaging has given us -- the ability to see and form a better future.  We are deciding to join independent bookstores to raise money for RAICES, https://actionnetwork.org/…/raices-refugee-and-immigrant-ce… ; the organization in Texas providing low-to-no cost legal services to folks who are imprisoned at our border. We have partnered with the initiative started by the staff of A Room of One’s Own and  #BookstoresAgainstBorders . We are asking independent bookstores across the country to join us by donating a percentage of sales to RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services). We are doing this not only to raise more money for this vital organization but to show the country we are more than just places of business, we are members of our communities in ways that go far beyond the transactional. Join us July 4th from 9-7 or Saturday-Sunday.   https://www.classy.org/fundraiser/2179999
