Tremendous forces rock our world of magazine literacy

It’s timely to reflect on the tremendous forces and upheavals in the economic, political, and community landscapes that are shaping the ecosystem for our magazine literacy mission. Financial markets are down – then up – then down again. Government, education, human, and community services face enormous funding gaps that demand doing more with less. Within this context, the value of our new and recycled magazines increases significantly for teachers and other community literacy agents helping children and families who want to learn and love to read. Getting reading materials into homes becomes even more imperative as the fabric of safety net wears thin. On the other hand, citizen engagement and activism are way up, thanks to a sweeping non-partisan, national call to public service that will amplify in coming months. Our challenge is to improve our capabilities and collaboration to better inventory and spotlight literacy needs, while channeling and focusing the generous outpouring of compassion and support to meet those needs. Help us to find and feed those hungry to read. Join us to change the world – one magazine – one new reader at a time.
