The National Coalition for Literacy has designated September 21-26, 2015 as National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week. According to the Coalition,
National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week raises public awareness of adult education and family literacy, assists adult learners in need of literacy services, leverages local resources, and supports increased access to adult education and family literacy programs. Advocates across the country use this opportunity to elevate adult education and family literacy nationwide with policymakers, the media, and the community.
AEFL Week is supported by resolutions in the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Coalition provides links to activities, resources, and information on its AEFL Week Resources page.
