Hartford Schools Unions' "Reading Opens the World"

Sat, 05/13/2023 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Members of our AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions representing teachers and education personnel in Hartford Public Schools are teaming up with their colleagues to bring new books to local children. Several community organizations, local businesses and Hartford’s minor league baseball team are also co-sponsoring the event. Together they are partnering with First Book, an international non-profit social enterprise dedicated to provide brand new, free, and low-cost reading material to kids from low-income families. 
Members, parents and advocates are also encouraged to volunteer beforehand and during the event with sorting and distribution.
