Literacy education in El Salvador making a difference

When we first met Chicagoan and Global Activist Debra Gittler, she wanted to “create conditions on-the-ground through literacy education, opportunity and advocacy” to help children in Central America thrive. To accomplish her goals, Debra started the organization ConTextos. She now lives in El Salvador. For our Global Activism segment, Gittler is back in Chicago and will update us on how her work has expanded into El Salvador’s justice system.
