Do A Little

Hannah Freedom School in Marin City is one of the Children Defense Fund’s national projects to “take a stand for children” by providing a six week reading and language arts summer program. Executive Director, Bettie Hodges, trains with CDF Founder & President, Marian Wright Edelman, one of my sheroes. Mrs. Edelman works tirelessly for the rights of children in health care, ending childhood poverty, and in improving the quality of education. The Freedom Schools focus on increasing the skills and love of reading, and provide times during each day when children are read to aloud and read in silence.
