The Student Coalition for Action in Literacy Education (SCALE) will be celebrating National Literacy Action Week (NLAW), commemorating the 50th anniversary of the civil rights sit-ins in Greensboro, N.C.

NLAW, a SCALE initiative for strengthening literacy activism, is a nationwide event during which campus literacy programs join together to raise awareness about literacy and create change on their campuses and in their communities. SCALE will invite college students from around the country to plan programs and activities that will help raise awareness or make change in your community.
