Literacy to Liberation
Literacy is the very foundation of all learning and the pathway to liberation for every human being. At Children’s Literacy Initiative (CLI), we believe that systemic change is the only solution to the current social unrest and the only way that the public education system will become equitable for children of color. This year we sharpened our mission to better reflect our work, purpose, and the children we serve.
With your support, CLI will continue to empower children, enable teachers, strengthen schools, and uplift communities. Join the thousands of CLI advocates this #GivingTuesday and give the gift of literacy!
Make a gift. Your tax-deductible contribution fuels our work. With your help we can ensure teachers in under-resourced schools continue to have the training and resources they need to help students develop the reading skills essential to success. With your support, we can do more.
