Purchase Books to help Diversify DC Classroom Libraries
The Special Liaison Branch (SLB) works closely with the District's vibrant communities, in particular its African, Asian, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Interfaith, LGBTQ+, and Latino communities. SLB is a model for community policing in its work with historically underserved communities. We believe that impacting a child’s life in the beginning will follow them into their future.
The MPD SLB unit intends to fill the participating school’s classrooms with books that include Asian, African, African-American, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Latino, Interfaith and LGBTQ+ characters. Our goal is to have a book in every child’s classroom (of participating schools) that have characters whom they can relate to. Children’s books will be selected, where a child can see characters of their same ethnic background, faith, or physical disability being successful and prosperous.
Your donation will be used to purchase books to support this initiative. SLB members will delivery to schools and read to students.
Your donation is tax deductible, and you will receive a donation contribution e-mail to support your records.
