Literacy to Liberation
Transforming Classrooms for Racial Equity
Racial inequity deepens when we fail to teach Black and Latinx students to read.
CLI is normalizing anti-racist pedagogy at the source.
How will you investment bring transformative change?
Your investment will enable CLI and its partners to normalize anti-racist, culturally sustaining early literacy instruction and catalyze generational impact at the onset of every Black and Latinx child's literacy journey.

Literacy is practice of justice and joy, and we are committed to supporting children and teachers.
Our goal is that Black and Latinx children learn to read as a powerful act of identity, agency, and cultural joy.
CLI honed its validated, evidence-based approach through 30 plus years of innovation and service, improving teacher practice and Black and Latinx children's literacy outcomes. Our staff and board reflect diversity and inclusivity, and we are deeply committed to becoming an anti-racist organization.
