About Literary Freedom Project

The Literary Freedom Project is committed to creating spaces that help elevate cultural narratives. Our programs value the variety of histories and cultures found in the Bronx and give educators & residents places to build community and explore social engagement. To this end, LFP presents One Book One Bronx, the Mosaic Literary Conference, and lesson plans for high school educators.

One Book One Bronx is a discussion group that meets weekly and hosts restorative conversations related to gentrification, social justice, women’s empowerment, criminal justice, and racial inequality. Reading selections reflect the racial, economic, and gender demographics of the borough and build bridges to engagement while (re)sparking a love of literature. Sessions are free to join. The first 25 attendees receive a free copy of the book. 

The Mosaic Literary Conference is an annual event that presents creative ways of keeping books and reading valuable sources of knowledge and creativity. We are currently reimagining our literary magazine, Mosaic, as a way to remix the conference's subject matter into a print publication and podcast.

LFP designs lesson plans and workshops for secondary school educators that demonstrate how cultural and social engagement can serve as a connective tool to empower educators to use books, writing, and reading to further engage students.


Goals
$85.28 of $2,000 per month
Hitting this goal will give us the ability to expand One Book One Bronx to a 3rd location and purchase books for all in-person participants. Most importantly, $2,000/month will allow a level of independence and ensure this new fundraising model works to allow LFP some freedom from the burdensome grant-writing model.
