A Year with
George Orwell,

Black Lives Matter. 

In the summer of 2020, after the murder of George Floyd, Unabridged Bookstore made a commitment to each month support and contribute to organizations that work towards achieving racial justice in America, as well as promoting social, environmental and economic justice. Since June 2020 Unabridged has contributed over $26,000 to 26 difference organizations, and we are continuing this commitment to support these kinds of organizations each month. Thank you for joining us in this commitment.

To honor the Black Lives Matter movement, and as part of our commitment to promoting the work of activists and organizations engaged in the fight for environmental justice and against systemic racism, social injustice, hunger, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia, we choose to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Brave Space Alliance this month:


In light of the Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, we at Unabridged are renewing our support for the work of activists and organizations engaged in progressive causes.

We will continue to honor the Black Lives Matter movement with our monthly effort to highlight and donate to those engaged in the fight for social, environmental, and economic justice, and with reproductive rights at risk across the US, we will make an additional, monthly contribution to Chicago Abortion Fund and Midwest Access Coalition. We ask you to join us in supporting these organizations, and to continue to read and resist!
