For those of you who might want to see the event, here is a video archive of the DC LEARNs annual meeting for 2003. DC LEARNs
is the 7-year-old coalition of adult literacy organizations in Washington DC. One of the high points
of last night's meeting were the awards given to adult literacy volunteers and adult learners.
If you don't have time to watch the full 60-minute archive, check out the 2-minutes that describe Tom Brown
from Academy of Hope. You'll need the free RealPlayer software and a high speed internet connection to view this.
