UELMA Works – Dec. 2020

Ambassador Reynolds

It is true. UELMA tried to get Jason Reynolds to our conference this year but he had other plans. All is not lost though. Here is an opportunity for YOU to submit a proposal to have him at “your event”!

(an excerpt is below) Please visit the whole story at www.everychildareader.net

“Reynolds will meet with students virtually* in small, underserved communities across the country during the second year of his two-year term to have meaningful discussions with young people. Through his platform, GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story, he will connect with, listen to, and empower students in these communities to share their own stories and start their journey as storytellers. “
