Rally to Protest Closure of LAUSD Family Literacy Centers May 27

Families will gather next Tuesday, May 27, at school district headquarters to protest the impending closure of the LAUSD Family Literacy Program. The nationally renowned parent and child education program has been successful in lifting Los Angeles families out of illiteracy and poverty for more than a dozen years.

LAUSD officials have ordered the program to close for good next Thursday, the victim of budget cuts.

The protest has been set for 2 pm. Tuesday, May 27, at school district offices at 333 South Beaudry Ave., Los Angeles,  90017.

Protesters, including parents, children, alumni, teachers, volunteers and friends of the program, will be carrying signs and chanting in English and Spanish. Protesters will wear red. There will be speeches in English and Spanish.  For more information, see http://lafamilyliteracy.org
