Professor Todd Womack is dedicated to literacy. "Community Reads is not only about improving literacy, but also about approaching deep issues that impact the Flint community. "We want to bring people together and build relationships. And within those relationships we want to begin to wrestle with issues that face our community-you can't do that on an island."
The Literacy Network has also been instrumental in helping to connect "Community Reads" to other Literacy organizations. "It's a really synergistic approach to see how literacy organizations can come together and support one another. It's an organic approach, but it's also intentional about working with other partners who are also tackling literacy."
