A Taste of Literacy fundraiser is a FREE annual event that inspires guests as they learn about LCNV's work to promote literacy in the Greater Washington Area and hear accounts of the challenges faced by families and adults who are not able to read, write or speak in English and how they triumph over them.

On March 25, “A Taste of Literacy: A Virtual Event” will include videos and messages from our staff and learners sharing the difficulties English language learners face today and every day. Guests will follow along via e-mail messages sent throughout the day, on social media, and/or via our event webpage and will be invited to a special live online event.

Our current crisis only highlights the importance of language education for learners who often work in unskilled and low wage jobs. 80% of our learners live below 200% of poverty and represent many of those who are out of work or required to work despite being at risk. RSVP today to join us in this virtual experience and hear the powerful stories of LCNV students, win fun prizes, and support LCNV and our efforts to offer equity and opportunity to English language learners around the region. Literacy is a Survival Skill!
