Right to Read Screening Recap

A sold-out room at The Fillmore Philadelphia came together this past August to show support for literacy and learn together how we can advocate AND agitate. It was an honor to partner with Read by 4th, The School District of Philadelphia, Fund for the School District of Philadelphia, Read to Succeed Philadelphia, Reading AllowedTeach For America Greater Philadelphia, and Joyful Readers to view the eye-opening film screening of “The Right to Read” documentary followed by an incredible panel discussion. Panelists included Dr. Nyshawana Francis-Thompson (School District of Philadelphia), Laura Boyce (Teach Plus PA), Angel Osorio Pizarro (Pan American Charter for Teach for America Alumni), John Butler (Reading Captain and author), and our very own, Sharif El-Mekki.
