The Literacy Project is a 501c3 organization registered in the state of Maryland

Our work lifts up the stories of those who are teaching literacy to others or struggling to achieve literacy  themselves. We use documentary storytelling to connect with and contribute to present-day movements for literacy and education justice.

We promote the notion that literacy is possible for all, through multimedia oral history and documentary projects that archive and share stories of literacy, with a particular emphasis on the roles of literacy programs in social justice movements throughout the Americas. By documenting and sharing stories of those who we can learn from and apply those lessons to our currents struggles for justice.


We envision a world in which all people have access to quality education, a voice in their community, and understand their power to transform their lives and world.
