The Bay Area Urban Debate League needs your books and old laptops. We are launching our first ever Lending Library – and sending our students into a national circuit of competitive debate where laptops are key to survival.
BOOKS: Our students are ready to dig into books on politics, theory, and more. Anything on your shelf that might inspire and edify these young debaters would be welcome. This year’s national debate topic is space – so books on this theme are particularly welcome – but any good books are more than welcome. Please only give books that you have enjoyed; we will inspire our students by keeping the quality high.
LAPTOPS: Anything with the power to run basic office applications is perfect – no matter how old, it will make a real difference. The national circuit of debate is almost entirely paperless now – without laptops our varsity debaters will be seriously disadvantaged.
If you have any books or laptops you can contribute to this noble campaign, please get in touch with Executive Director Dmitri Seals at email@example.com or 510-517-0069 and make a time to drop by our brand new office.
Speaking of the new office, we will have an Office Warming Party on July 26th from 5:30 to 7:30 – save the date, and look forward to more news soon!
