About United Literacy… a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization, United Literacy strives to bring literacy and technology together to better serve and support adult learners and local literacy organizations throughout the United States.
Our lives are filled with words. We read newspapers for news, freeway signs for directions, product descriptions on food packaging for nutritional information, and books for entertainment and education. For the 30 million people in the United States over age 16—14 percent of the adult population—these simple tasks are difficult, if not impossible. According to ProLiteracy, adult low literacy skills can be connected to almost every socio-economic issue in the United States. Low literacy’s effects cost the U.S. over $225 billion each year in non-productivity in the workforce, crime, and loss of tax revenue due to unemployment.
