In 2016, an anti-LGBTQ+ hate group forced a school in Wisconsin to cancel plans to read “I am Jazz” in support of a transgender student. In response, more than 600 residents in a town of less than 8,000 showed up at a public reading organized by a parent to show the students that the community had their back.
Every year, in honor of the Mount Horeb community’s allyship, communities across the country join HRCF's Welcoming Schools program for its annual National Day of Reading: A Celebration of Stories Supporting Transgender and Non-Binary Youth.
Join us on March 5th, 2024, for our 9th National Day of Reading! We will read 3 or 4 books, and divide into two age groups if needed. All ages welcome.
