An estimated 30% of adults in Chicago have limited to low skills in basic literacy, which has direct financial, social, and personal impacts on society. The Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition is working to combat this statistic, providing funding and resources to adult education centers around the city.
In Shelley Stern Grach’s latest Civic Chat — Networking Our Neighborhoods, she sits down with Becky Raymond, Executive Director of the Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition, to explore the growth of the organization from a small grassroots movement of 20 people to a staple in Chicago’s community.
