LRA is a community of scholars, dedicated to promoting research that enriches the knowledge, understanding, and development of lifespan literacies in a multicultural and multilingual world. LRA is dedicated to disseminating such research broadly so as to promote generative theories, informed practices and sound policies. (See LRA Mission Statement.)

We are deeply saddened by the continued tragedies incurred disproportionately by our Black, Indigenous and Latinx communities. We cannot sit by in silence. We call for renewed dedication of our scholarly talents to call out racism and injustices and support equitable, inclusive, anti-racist educational practices and spaces.
