About Little Justice Leaders

Making it easy to learn about social justice.

Our mission is simple: We want to make it easy for you to teach your little ones about social justice. 

We created Little Justice Leaders because we know it can be hard to talk with young children about these issues. We want to make it easier for you!

Fun, educational materials every month.

With a package that arrives each month, your learners can get excited and look forward to learning about a new social justice issue. It will also help make sure that these issues become a regular part of your day-to-day lives and conversations. The resources are created specifically for kids in grades K-6th grade, so they are age-appropriate and fun to keep them interested.

I love these boxes and the conversations we have because of them!

How It Works

When you sign up for Little Justice Leaders, every month you will receive a learning kit of carefully selected items to guide learning about an important social justice topic. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to an organization working on that issue.

Be part of the solution.

Talking about social justice issues can be hard. We want to make it easier. With conversation starters, activities, and other goodies, you can make these tough conversations fun and interesting for your little ones.

When you sign up for Little Justice Leaders, every month you will receive a kit of carefully created resources to learn together about a social justice issue.

The monthly package will remind you to engage in these conversations on an ongoing basis, and you will learn more about a number of important issues! 

Start your learning today!

A portion of all sales goes to support amazing organizations and activists doing work in the area of the social justice issue addressed in the package that month, so you can feel good about giving back.

We want this to be helpful for you and your learners, so if you’re not happy, you get your money back. No questions asked.

Our Story

Hi, I’m Shelby

And that’s me with my niece and nephew, Henley and Donovan. My dream is to help them and other kids like them grow up with an awareness of social justice and acceptance of all people. 

I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in Urban Education at UCLA, and I’m passionate about education and social justice. I’ve spent more than a decade working with kids and families to facilitate fun learning experiences. 

For each kit, I consult with folx who are directly impacted by that social justice issue to select the best resources for you. I try to source products from socially conscious, small businesses owned by women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ folx. And I donate a portion of the money from each box sold to a non-profit working on that issue. 

Please feel free to email me at shelby@littlejusticeleaders.com with any questions, concerns, or ideas for working together. 

I hope you will join our community of Little Justice Leaders!
