How do we advocate for change in literacy?

Hi Literacy Lovers,

In our recent podcast episode with Kareem Weaver, co-founder of FULCRUM Oakland: Full and Complete Reading is a Universal Mandate, he discusses the literacy change he is fighting for the elements he believes are necessary to make it happen. His passion and devotion to this work shines through and is truly inspiring. 

We hope that this episode inspires you to be a lever for literacy change in your classroom, school, and community. 

 We are so glad you are here to learn with us! 💙
