A Space for All

Voices of Diversity

The Easton Public Library, in collaboration with the Easton Diversity & Inclusion Task Force (EDIT), will host an inspiring lawn sign exhibit, featuring select quotations from some of the world's most valued diverse voices. The signs will be exhibited on the Library's front lawn. This exhibit will focus on inclusivity and diversity in all its powerful and glorious forms. We look forward to receiving submissions of quotations reflecting this. Not only are we looking for submissions of quotations of well-known individuals who have made a mark (or are making a mark) to further social justice and alleviate implicit bias, but we wish to highlight the lesser known historic and up-and-coming voices of diversity as well. For example, we might see submissions for quotations of Caesar Chavez, Megan Rapinoe, Tammy Duckworth, Jacqueline Woodson, Katherine Johnson, Deb Haaland, Jason Reynolds, and John Lewis, to name a few.

"The library is an arena of possibility, opening both a window into the soul and a door onto the world."
