SOVI book club promo poster

New to our 2021 programming is SOVI’s Book Club. With it, we hope to create a community of conversation and learning on social justice issues, to promote social and structural change. Also, to build a network of peers, during a time when meaningful social interaction is scarce. While we’re encouraging youth engagement, all are welcome!

Our first book is the award-winning, The Skin We’re In, by Canadian activist and journalist Desmond Cole. We are eager to use this important text to learn, incite conversation and promote action.
