Latinas For Latino Lit, L4LL
“L4LL is a woman- and minority-owned education and literacy organization run by co-founders Viviana Hurtado, Ph.D. and Monica Olivera. Considered Latina influencers with a combined three decades in the education, Hispanic, and media space, our mission to raise literacy rates through pedagogically sound, culturally relevant content, and technology is rooted in our belief that all educational and professional achievement, as well as economic empowerment rests on the mastery of basic reading skills.”
