We envision a St. Louis region where all families, regardless of race, have the opportunity to thrive.



We Stories uses the power of children’s literature to create conversation, change and hope in St. Louis, and a stronger, more equitable and inclusive future for all.


Theory of Change

IF more families are provided with 1) resources to improve the way they engage their children in conversations about race, 2) connections to like-minded families, and 3) opportunities to add their voices to racial justice activism and policy change efforts, THEN the resulting community of families will become a force of positive change, BECAUSE many want to be part of solutions to make St. Louis more equitable but feel unprepared, isolated, or disconnected from action opportunities.


organizational status

We received our tax-exempt 501(c)3 status from the IRS in April 2016. 



We seek to form partnerships with organizations in St. Louis that are already working to eliminate our region's racial disparities. With the help of these partners and small businesses, we align We Stories families to robust action opportunities that advance equity.
