CWILL BC stands in solidarity

CWILL BC denounces the acts of injustice, violence, and racism that have been committed against persons of colour, especially Black and Indigenous peoples of Canada. We stand in solidarity with them, and endorse the statements issued by The Writers’ Union of Canada, CANSCAIP, the Association of Canadian Publishers, the Canadian Authors Association and other organizations who have vocalized support, protested, and taken action to bring an end to prevalent and systematic racism.

As writers and illustrators who often work directly with children in schools and libraries, we realize the power that our work holds. Children’s books can offer hope to the youngest members of society, and can positively promote and effect change. Our members strive to provide diverse and fair representation in our work; this has always been a priority for us, and we will continue to make it so. Finally, we encourage, support, and celebrate the creators and stories that reflect diversity in our communities.

About Lee Edward Fodi

I’m a children’s author, illustrator, and specialized arts educator—or, as I like to think of myself, a daydreaming expert. I'm the author of the Kendra Kandlestar series and The Secret of Zoone. During my free time, I'm a traveler, adventurer, and maker of dragon eggs. I live in Vancouver with my wife, son, and unhelpful cat.
