CCALC President, Yolanda Medina, during her presentation "Beyond ESL: Adult Literacy for Hispanics" at the U.S. Conference on Adult Literacy in Washington, D.C. on November 1, 2013.
  

The U.S. Conference on Adult Literacy brings together adult literacy advocates and educators to share new ideas, learn from leading thinkers, and inspire one another. Perhaps that's why so many attendees describe USCAL as the highlight of their year.
