Holiday Greetings

On behalf of the 80,000 children who are learning to read with the help of supporters like you, we wish you a very happy holiday, filled with joy, laughter, and a love of learning.

At CLI, we believe literacy is fundamental to driving the systemic change that promotes racial equity, educational progress, and social justice. We do what we do because we know that transforming our education landscape, particularly in improving early childhood literacy, is vital to fixing a system that disproportionately hurts Black and Latinx families, perpetuates injustice, and resists change.

We give our deepest thanks to all our staff, partners, supporters and advocates of Children’s Literacy Initiative. The work that you support at CLI not only serves educators and students, it serves communities across the country by transforming early literacy education and providing resources and support to the children who need it most. We cannot do what we do at CLI without you. 

Thank You!
