Social Justice Fair + UC Davis Launch + Campaign Update

Happy Monday, Friends and Family!


We hope you are all well.


Thank you to those who attended the 2nd Annual Social Justice Children’s Book Holiday Fair which featured local bookmakers like us, local live performers, and taco trucks .It was great to see people get excited about finding our various books on diversity and social justice. Thanks also to bookmakers Innosanto Nagara, Maya Christina Gonzales, Laura Atkins, Janine Macbeth, and Robert Trujillo who organized the event!

This coming Saturday, December 15th, 2:00-5:00, the UC Davis Bulosan Center for Filipino Studies will be launching our book, Jack Meets Agyu, along with Kirby Araullo’s Black Lives & Brown Freedom: Untold Histories of War, Solidarity, & Genocide. If you’re in the Davis area, please join us as we discuss our work, share food, and create some holiday crafts to conclude this year. More info at:


Lastly, our campaign is still ongoing! We have 8 more days to close the gap between our stated goal of $11,000 and what we currently have, $8,390. PLEASE PLEASE continue to share about our campaign, contribute to our campaign (via link below), and encourage your friends and family to contribute. With your help, we are optimistic that we can do this! (Or at least try like crazy!)


Thanks for all the help! We will keep you posted. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this beautiful winter weather.


Justine (and the Jack Meets Agyu Team)
