Community Builder Awardee: Stacy Ratner

Kellie RomanyEvents

Our Community Builder Award recognizes the contributions of Stacy Ratner to the Chicago literacy community. Her vision for literacy in Chicago led to the founding of Open Books, which provides programs to 5,000+ students and gives away 150,000+ books each year. She also founded the Chicago Literacy Alliance and Literacenter, which has provided an inspirational place for WITS to call home since 2015.

Check out this video of the Chicago Literacy Alliance team talking about how Stacy empowers Chicago to be 100% literate.
