The Ethnicity, Race, and Multilingualism Committee has four main objectives:

  • To increase awareness and knowledge of members about issues of diversity and equity in literacy research and education.
  • To promote an interest in conducting or supporting literacy research aimed at improving educational opportunities, access, achievement, and empowerment of students of diverse, cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • To increase the participation of scholars of diverse cultural backgrounds in LRA as members, Annual Conference presenters, Committee members, and officers. 
  • To assist and advise the Board of Directors in monitoring LRA’s progress in meeting goals of equity.
