Dear Supporters of Literacy,

Please join us in our work to empower underrepresented communities. Our goal is improved literacy throughout the Latino community. Our goals at Latino Literacy Now, a 501c3 nonprofit, are a variety of initiatives including educational, financial, and health literacy. Our cause is improving lives, both professionally and personally.

For this 2017 event a team of community leaders, educators, librarians, and Award Winning Authors have united to ensure that the Festival is well organized, well attended, and has a great array of workshops, activities, and entertainment.

Thanks and hope to see you at a Latino Literacy Now event this year.
