2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Alex and Kris will write and illustrate a book for early-education-age children that explores gender-nonconformity, along with a supplementary curriculum guide for families and early childhood educators. The book will feature a gender non-conforming protagonist of color, and they will base the plot of this story in the conversations they will have while working with young students at the Children's Community School (CCS) in West Philadelphia, where Kris teaches.
