Attanya: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because I love science fiction and fantasy books, but I’m tired of authors treating dragons and robots and magic as more plausible than black and brown characters
Jennifer: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because… when I was 13 a white girl told me it was selfishthat all of the protagonists in my stories were Latina because she “just can’t relate to nonwhite characters.” She made me feel guilty for writing about people like me. 
Aiesha: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because…Black Girls are more than sidekicks or “sassy, ghetto friend”

Facts and Figures About Race/Ethnicity in YA and Children’s Lit:
88% of the books on the 2013 Publisher’s Weekly YA Bestsellers were about white protagonists
93% of the authors on the 2013 Publisher’s Weekly YA Bestsellers were white authors
85% of the books on the 2014 Young Adult Library Services Association’s Best Fiction for Young Adults list were about white protagonists 
90% of the authors on the 2014 Young Adult Library Services Association’s Best Fiction for Young Adults list were white authors
91% of the authors on the 2013 New York Times’s Bestseller Lists for YA and Children’s Lit were white authors. 
According to the 2012 Cooperative Children’s Book Center, only 3.3% of books were about African-American protagonists; only 2.1% were about Asian and Pacific Islander protagonists; only 1.5% were about Latinx protagonists; and only 0.6% were about Native American protagonists.
