The Literacy Advocacy Project

“Believe in something larger than yourself ... get involved in the big ideas of your time.” – Barbara Pierce Bush, Texas Eta

Pi Phi is committed to building upon its legacy of literacy. Every Pi Phi can be an advocate and make a difference in the lives of children in communities across North America.

To make a greater impact in increasing literacy awareness, Pi Phi launched the Literacy Advocacy Project at Convention 2017. Developed and presented by Pi Phi in partnership with the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, this interactive event prepares participants to advocate for literacy in their communities. The program explores all aspects of literacy advocacy — why it’s important, how you can make an impact and what is needed to become an agent of change.

  • Know high-impact statistics related to literacy;
  • Know why it is critical to advocate for literacy;
