The New Tucson Literacy Movement
Arizona Public Media
In May of 2011, the managing boards of five different literacy groups in Pima County voted to merge together in order to further their mission. The groups are Literacy for Life Coalition, Literacy Volunteers of Tucson, Reach Out and Read Southern Arizona, Reading Seed, and Stories That Soar. While each expects to continue doing its own specific job, they hope that by uniting together they can stretch their resources farther, offer more services, and make a larger impact on the community.
