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.

Every two months, Book Club meetings will be held virtually and/or in-person at a County Library branch within the 2nd Supervisorial District.

The selected readings align with RJLE monthly events and Book Club discussions are co-hosted with Team Mitchell and community partners.

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!
