EMBRACE READING

"We should all know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry and we must all understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color."

- Dr. Maya Angelou

INTRODUCING:

PROJECT I.D.E.A

Inclusion. Diversity. Equity. Awareness.

“It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.” - Oscar Wilde 

WHAT?

EMBRACE Action, and other local community organizations including the Islamic Center of Frisco, are collecting and distributing books to Frisco ISD elementary and middle school libraries.  Our goal is to deliver books to our schools from a curated, vetted book list featuring diverse themes and characters that reflect and celebrate the diversity of the student population.

WHY?

We believe that it is important for all children to see many races, ethnicities, and cultures in the books that they read. Our goal is to leverage literature and also to help all kids in our community see and celebrate themselves in literature and to ensure that our libraries have a selection of books that represent all of our school-aged children.

WHEN?

Our Book Drive will end on April 16, 2021. 

HOW?

2. DONATE. Make a donation via credit card or bank account directly to Embrace Action and we will purchase books on our curated book lists from Black-owned, independent, and local bookstores. 

There are two ways to contribute to our Book Drive: 

1. AMAZON WISH LIST. We have over 50 recommended books that you can purchase electronically and have sent directly to Embrace Action. Our volunteers will deliver all books directly to elementary and middle school libraries. Access our wishlists below.
