LINC Joins Bronx Senate Delegation Budget Forum

On February 21st, LINC's Community Engagement Specialist, Arisbel Villa and Director of Community Mobilization, Corey Saxton joined the Bronx Senate Delegation Budget Forum and urged New York State leaders to make early literacy and early education top programmatic and funding priorities for the upcoming budget cycle.

Let's create mandates and resources that will foster greater collaboration between our healthcare and education systems throughout a child’s earliest years and dispel the belief that learning to read begins in the classroom with formal education. Education begins at birth. Until all children have universal access to the positive pre-reading experiences that are the foundation of literacy, achieving grade-level proficiency will remain an inequitable struggle and unattainable challenge.
