Join us for our Fall Conference, November 4th from 9am-3pm, where we will learn from literacy experts about tools, interventions and solutions we can recommend to the Detroit Literacy Task Force in order to use the $94 million meant for literacy effectively. We will also learn about the history of literacy, and how we can work together to fight for $4.5 billion more across Michigan in order to truly solve the literacy issue for all students.
