Reading Partners Read To Succeed Speaker Series

Join Reading Partners New York for our expanded Read to Succeed benefit on February 26, when we commence our 2021 Virtual Speaker Series. Participants will have a chance to converse with leaders in the education landscape to discuss issues around race, equity, and access in education. We are thrilled to kick off this event with a conversation featuring Anne Williams-Isom, former CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone, and Alvin Bragg, visiting professor of law at New York Law School. This will be the first dialogue of our series. Future events and speakers will be announced at a later date.

We hope the Read to Succeed Speaker series will provide an opportunity to join together in support of Reading Partners students and to engage in important conversation. All ticket sales, event sponsorships, and individual donations will support Reading Partners Connects virtual tutoring for students across New York City

This event will engage professionals across a wide range of industries and will offer a variety of sponsorship levels for individual and corporate involvement. For more information, please contact Danica Stewart, development manager, at (646) 402-6280 or
