Book Club

The Office of Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell’s Racial Justice Learning Exchange Book Club is open to all who are interested in connecting with fellow residents on learning and discussing strategies for advancing racial justice.

Each quarter, we will read one of the books below. Book Club participants will be invited to engage in an online discussion forum regarding the contents of the book.

The book club selections will align with Racial Justice Learning Exchange public events focus on shared histories and current dynamics impacting racial justice.

Whether you are just starting your learning journey or you’re already a bookworm for racial justice, we look forward to your participation and are committed to supporting our collective learning!
