Reading with Relevance

D. Lacy Asbill is the Co-Founder of Reading with Relevance, a nonprofit organization and literacy program that focuses on students’ emotional well being as a critical strategy for improving their academic achievement. Founded 18 years ago in Oakland, the organization has served 10,000+ youth in their community, and trained 500+ young adults to serve as a new generation of educational leaders. Now, Lacy is on a mission to support educators across the state to integrate academic and social/emotional learning--using relevant reading to inspire students to read deeply, think critically, talk openly, and write reflectively about topics that matter. Lacy is also the Founding Director of Moving Forward Institute.
