BookWe Are Gems: Healing from Anti-Asian Microaggressions through Self-love & Solidarity Kindle Edition


We Are Gems helps readers to critically question microaggressions against Asian Americans through self-love and solidarity with Black and Indigenous-led movements for justice and healing. It is a joyous celebration of Asian Americans and our history.

We believe that learning & living out racial justice starts at home, including on our bookshelves. That is why we wrote and illustratrated We Are Gems (ages 8+). Check out our website for a free Common Core-aligned discussion guide: https://www.justwordsjustdeeds.com/
