Established in 2017, Sanctuary Publishers started as a small seed planted into our subconsciousness when we first leaped into social justice work over a decade and a half ago. Since then, that seed continued to grow. A decade and a half of activism helped us realize that we could use our collective talents to help raise their voices through their stories. The seed had finally taken root.
We believe in consistent anti-oppression.
Our original logo (on the right) represented our humble beginning, one of learning, which extended into a form whose branches represent strength and growth as we embarked to use art illustration and the written word to raise the voices of all.
Our new logo symbolizes healing, community , and strength . It is a commitment to our original vision, which has grown to include disruption through decolonization as a publisher led by the descendant of the Taino and the original African people brought to Quiskeya and Boriken.
Books sold help to generate funds that support resources, as well as the individuals or group on which the book is based on. It is important for us to create books that inspire change for the betterment of our world, and at the same time, foster the ethics in which our values are based on – for people (human and nonhuman), nature, and our world as a whole.
We want our society to be a sanctuary – a safe space – for all.
We are a vegan owned and operated entity committed to using our privileges and raising the voices of non-human animals, Black, Brown, Indigenous people and other People of Color, all other marginalized communities, and the environment.
