Diversity Activity & Coloring Book

“Finding Joy in Our Differences” is the manifestation of a wonderful partnership between JFCS of the Suncoast, Embracing Our Differences and two talented students at the Ringling College of Art and Design. This book teaches children about the importance of diversity and inclusion and helps to eradicate illiteracy.
