“Reading is key to life, to joy—to our very existence,” says AFT President Randi Weingarten. It’s foundational to everything we do. Now more than ever, after two years of disruption as the result of COVID-19, harnessing the love of reading is key to helping our students and families recover. “That’s why the AFT is launching the Reading Opens the World campaign—to first and foremost give children and young people free books to read, love and keep, and to open their world,” says Weingarten. This new multiyear, multimillion-dollar literacy campaign will support students, educators and families, and foster an ongoing love of reading.
