  2. 2. I believe that literacy is vital to ensure the prosperity of our citizens and the strength of our democracy. I also know reading offers validation for our experiences and fosters empathy and awareness of others who have different experiences than ours. In light of these beliefs, I have decided to expand my #bookaday and ongoing book donation efforts to include donating at least one book every day that reflects the diversity of our global family. --Facebook post on November 10, 2016
