LitWorld, a global literacy organisation based in New York, founded World Read Aloud Day in March 2010 as an awareness movement advocating literacy as a fundamental right that belongs to all people, but also as a day to motivate children, teenagers and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another.
In 2010, LitWorld established World Read Aloud Day, an advocacy day that asserts the right to read and write for all people. World Read Aloud Day has reached people in 65 countries and all 50 states. In 2011, LitWorld launched Stand Up for Girls, a worldwide rally in recognition of the International Day of the Girl.
