Through the 49ers Read for Justice presented by Newfront program, 2,500 elementary students from local Boys & Girls Clubs received a copy of the book The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson which demonstrates the importance of diversity and inclusion. DL Arik Armstead joined students for a reading and discussion of the book. The books were purchased from black-owned bookstore, Ashay By The Bay, in Vallejo, CA. The 49ers hope is that by providing a book to these students and sharing this reading, we can instill an early love for education and open the dialogue for important lessons around diversity, inclusion and equity.
