Lincoln Literacy is not an advocacy organization. However, to remain silent during these difficult times would be to make a statement, one at odds with our essential values.
Lincoln Literacy is and always has been a community of caring and learning. We embrace people of all colors, origins, and cultures. Those we serve come from all over the world, including right here. What most of them have in common is the blight of poverty, the burdens of discrimination, and the determination to make their lives better.
Through our staff and volunteers we help them to achieve their dreams by building on their skills. We work in community centers, we work behind bars, we work in church basements, school cafeterias, and machine shops to get the job done. But today, we pause in our work to voice our concern for those who struggle against Injustices. We are with you, and we are here for you.
