Adult Literacy: Watch as the Secret 
Is Revealed on National TV 

ProLiteracy, one of ALP's national affiliates, announces that the TV show Secret Lives of Americans has filmed an episode about an adult who struggles with low literacy skills. Secret Lives of Americans is a groundbreaking documentary series that takes an unflinching look at the secrets people keep and the strength that it takes to reveal them to friends and family.

Watch the story of Cleo, a loving and supportive mother from Alabama, who has always encouraged her children to pursue their educational goals—all while keeping a secret that’s been holding her back. Watch the episode on Friday, June 3 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Pivot TV, or watch a recording of the episode online

Join us in raising awareness of adult literacy by taking the pledge to help improve lives through literacy
