Chicago Community Confabs create opportunities for authentic connection and a deeper understanding between CLA members and communities facing barriers to literacy resources.
This September, we will be learning more about the New City (Canaryville/ Back of the Yards) community.
During this virtual session, you will:
- learn about the history of the community and the present day realities
- understand how a community celebrates literacy and the barriers to literacy
- identify a community’s opportunities for collaboration and support
- learn more about CLA members currently serving the community in question
Additionally, members will have the opportunity to indicate interest in a curated virtual session as a follow-up to the Confab. These Action Groups will allow CLA members and community stakeholders to build pathways towards collaborative partnerships.
All are welcome to join the conversation!
