Event description

Description

It's that time of year again to advocate for Adult Literacy Education in Albany! On Wednesday, February 5, join us for the 2020 #LiteracyLiftsNY Advocacy Day!

Each year, the New York Coalition for Adult Literacy (NYCCAL) and Literacy NY (LNY) meet in Albany to advocate for Adult Literacy Education funding. By meeting with elected officials who have a final say in the State budget, NYCCAL's Advocacy Day is our chance to emphasize the importance of supporting and expanding Adult Literacy for all New Yorkers.

To kick off the day, Assemblymember Ron Kim will join us to host a rally for Adult Literacy in the State Capitol Building. We'll spend the rest of the day meeting with State Senators and Assemblymembers to demonstrate the widespread need for expanded access to adult literacy. Join us to make sure our Albany representatives hear our message loud and clear: #LiteracyLiftsNY!
