Throughout its history, SCALE has supported the activist initiatives of campus-based literacy programs across the country. National Literacy Action Week (NLAW) is a national initiative for strengthening literacy activism.

NLAW will take place January 27th-February 1st, 2014. During this week, campus literacy programs nationwide join together to raise awareness about literacy and create change on their campuses and in their communities.

Every year NLAW occurs around the anniversary of the Greensboro Sit-ins. Students were integral to the success of the Civil Rights Movement, as they organized campuses and participated in Freedom Rides, sit-ins and marches. We celebrate that spirit for social justice today!

Learn more about why NLAW, why college students, and why February 1st!
