As a community-based literacy organization, The READ Center is committed to providing critical programming to ensure that every person in Richmond has the skills they need to access resources and tools to pursue a healthy, safe, and fulfilling life.

The READ Center must take this opportunity to speak in alliance with those who are fighting systems of social injustice. We will not allow silence to represent complicity. We are dedicated to standing with our communities of color and marginalized students, staff, neighbors, and partners in the fight for justice.

There can be no equity without literacy. Please know that we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.

In solidarity,

The READ Center
