Please donate to 35th LD Dems’ Diversity-Equity-Inclusion (DEI) Book Drive

Democrats in the 35th LD meet to discuss books to consider for the Diversity-Equity-Inclusion book project.

WHAT: 35th LD Democrats will donate non-fiction books addressing D.E.I. issues to high schools within the 35th LD.

Some books being considered are:

  • “So You Want to Talk About Race”, by Ijeoma Oluo

 

  • “Where the Salmon Run: The Life and Legacy of Billy Frank Jr.”,
    by Trova Heffernan

 

  • “Harvest of Empire:  A History of Latinos in America”, by Juan Gonzales.

 

Our goal is to raise $2,000 to purchase new books this year.

WHY: Books addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion are in short supply in schools of the 35th LD and are being requested by teachers and students.

WHERE: Our focus is on the seven high schools in the 35th LD, to either the school library or teachers engaging this subject.

WHEN: Funds will be raised in June through August and books will be donated in the fall of 2021.
