"Everyone Belongs" (Loyola Press).

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism and Loyola Press has published a new book for children ages 5-12, to help young readers engage in conversations about racism.Inspired by the bishops’ 2018 pastoral letter "Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love, A Pastoral Letter Against Racism," "Everyone Belongs" is designed to allow young readers to reflect on the impact of racism in society. The book aims to help readers see racism through the lens of history and faith, and teaches them how to engage in respect, understanding and friendship. In the book, Ray Ikanga is a boy whose family flees violence in their home country to come to the United States as refugees. The family moves into a new neighborhood but Ray’s excitement is interrupted when someone spray paints “Go home!” on their garage door."Everyone Belongs" may be purchased at LoyolaPress.com/EveryoneBelongs.
