Literacy Pittsburgh stands in solidarity with the Asian American community during this time of sadness and injustice. Asian Americans have faced racist and violent attacks across the country, and this hate must end with justice given to its victims. We strive to create a supportive and welcoming environment for our students, volunteers, and staff. Our vision and values embody a community built upon inclusivity, kindness, and respect. We are committed to doing our part to create a world where all people are valued, safe, and thriving.
