Stand for Literacy
 
UploadWhat is Stand for Literacy?

ProLiteracy's Stand for Literacy is an online project that is meant to energize the conversation around adult literacy.

Hear adult learners talk about how literacy has transformed their lives. Watch their tutors and teachers talk about making a meaningful difference in their students' lives. See your local and national representatives make the case for adult literacy.

In the United States, 63 million adults—29 percent of the country's adult population—over age 16 don't read well enough to understand a news story written at the eighth grade level.

Low literacy means a person is unable to achieve his or her full potential as a parent, employee, and community member.
