Literacy Initiatives

Reading Rally

Reading Rally events are one of the ways EWI of Oklahoma City promotes literacy and learning in the community. As part of EWI’s ongoing literacy campaign, the Oklahoma City Chapter hosts an annual Reading Rally each spring for children at an under-served school in the Oklahoma City metro area. If you would like to help sponsor this event, please email the Oklahoma City Chapter at [email protected].
