Our Team

At ILA we eat, sleep, and breathe literacy. We dream of a world in which every human being is able to exercise their inalienable right to literacy. All members of our team are literacy leaders in their own right, true galvanizers who have fearlessly taken up the charge to turn this dream into reality.
