About this Event

Literacy is a tool for liberation and equity. Understanding that, the Chicago Literacy Alliance and its network of more than 100 member organizations are working with communities to advance economic and social justice through greater access to literacy.


Join us as the CLA takes us through their Equity Through Literacy Framework – a research-based, equity-focused theory of change that connects greater literacy to positive social outcomes. This framework demonstrates literacy’s connection to access, equity, engagement, civic fluency, and ultimately community progress.
