There are many ways to advocate for Adult Literacy.
Tutors, who come alongside adult learners, are the best advocates, next to the learners themselves.
We work with learners to write letters to local policymakers when adult literacy funding comes up for review. The learners love making a difference in issues that are important to them.
You can also educate yourself about adult literacy and share your knowledge with your community and your lawmakers.
If you'd like to be kept abreast of community-wide efforts to advocate local and federal government on the issues of literacy and other social services that affect adult learners, the DC LEARNs blog often posts news about local advocacy efforts. And you can subscribe to the DC LEARNs announcements listserve to receive news about advocacy and events in the local area.
