It’s no secret that Coloradans love to get involved. Whether in outdoor activities or philanthropic pursuits, even the youngest Centennial Staters are quick to participate. That’s why Chelsea Clinton made Denver the 15th stop on her book tour for It’s Your World, which aims to educate young people about global issues and encourage them to get involved in their communities.
Inspired by one of her favorite childhood books, 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth, Clinton introduces readers between the ages of 10 and 14 to big issues, including poverty, hunger, climate change, and gender inequality, using charts and photographs. Then she shares stories of kids and teens all over the world who have started their own projects, inspiring her readers to find a problem they care about and take action.
In addition to the book signing, Clinton will also visit Bruce Randolph School and the Rudolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch of the Denver Public Library, which helps facilitate Girls Inc. of Metro Denver, an organization mentioned in It’s Your World for providing activities and classes that empower girls to pursue their goals and succeed in school.
