Event description

Description

The CLA Confab is the premier monthly gathering in Chicago to showcase what's hot in literacy. As we continue to envision what a 100% literate Chicago looks like, the Confab will bring together speakers across our member network and the city to share top-level highlights from their work, connect around shared goals, and work toward collaborative solutions to the persisting gaps in literacy facing our city today.

This winter, we will be exploring the theme of Equity Issues in our network starting in December with a focus on Equity in Literacy Education (ensuring all students have the opportunities, supports, and tools they need, regardless of economic status, academic proficiency, geographic remoteness, and other barriers to school success). Join us as we hear about great programs from member leaders Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition, Chicago HOPES for Kids, Infiniteach, and 826CHI. We'll also hear from a special keynote guest, so stay tuned for more details.
