A new coloring book for all ages celebrates last January’s Women’s March—and includes several queer families and individuals among the many diverse people in its pages.
We March: A Coloring Book of the Women’s March, by Vivienne Wan, has just been funded through Kickstarter and offers approximately 25 hand-drawn coloring pages of scenes from the March, diverse and lively images of people speaking out for various aspects of social justice. Wan covers a wide range of people and issues, including queer ones. In addition to the pages at the right, which show a drag queen and a child with two moms, you can see another page with a queer couple at about 0:51 in the video below.
Wan writes that she wanted the book to “reflect the positivity and unity of that day…. I hope that this book not only revives some of the spirit of the Womens’ March, but that it also teaches the power of taking a stand for oneself, and speaking up for others.”
I also particularly like the pages at the end of people holding up blank signs that users can fill in themselves. The book seems thoughtfully done and a great way to teach or reinforce ideas of social justice with your kids (or to experience or re-experience a little of the excitement from the March yourself).
Wan plans to donate future sales to the ACLU. Watch the video below, and check out the project page to learn more.
