Oakland Literacy Coalition
The mission of the Oakland Literacy Coalition (Coalition) is to meet the literacy needs in our city, particularly for our youngest readers, by improving the capacity and increasing the impact of Oakland’s literacy providers. The Coalition fulfills its mission by bringing providers and stakeholders together to learn, collaborate, and champion literacy in the community. As one of its flagship initiatives, the Coalition leads the Oakland Reads campaign, aimed at dramatically increasing third grade reading achievement. The Coalition is led by two Co-Directors and works closely with a broad network of community partners.
