At FGLN, we envision a community where literacy is not a concern — A community where literacy is not contingent on where a family lives, what their race or ethnicity is, how they learn, the quality of their water, or the socio-economic status of their household. We believe that all families deserve to be literate.
One of our core values states, We are committed to equity and inclusion.We address the impact of institutional racism, poverty, and limited access to opportunity in our community. We value all people irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, language, disability, family background, income, or citizenship. We support programs and partners throughout Genesee County with a purposeful focus on vulnerable learners and areas of greatest need.
Join us virtually, December 11, 2020, from 10:00 am – Noon, at this crucial moment in our nation, as we embark upon a communal discussion about Equity and Education.
