Reading Matters 2020
The national 2020 election conversation has begun, and candidates from across all party lines are making their top issues clear. Alarmingly absent in the dialogue is the literacy crisis our nation is facing.
Reading is the foundation for learning, maximizing opportunities in life, and advancing the pursuit of a well-balanced society. That’s why Reading Partners is launching a nonpartisan campaign to ensure voters of all stripes are hyper-aware of the critical role reading plays in ensuring bright futures for US students.
Let’s rally together to strengthen our communities by advocating for early literacy education.
