Project Hope Road aims to bring texts written by authors of color to the children of Hamden Public Schools. Diverse authors and texts provide windows and mirrors for young people to see themselves and their friends. We hope to build a road to foster a community of inclusiveness that grows Hamden children into empathetic citizens of the world. If you are interested in purchasing books for our project, please visit our Amazon Wish List or our website using the links below. When purchasing, select “Project Hope Road: Deliveries to Ridge Hill School” prior to finalizing the order. You can find us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook @projecthoperoad. Please follow our accounts for exciting news and updates. Thank you in advance for your generosity and for contributing positively to the literary “world of magic” that we hope to enhance for all Hamden readers.
