Read Across America


California Freemasons have championed many great causes throughout history, but perhaps none as far-reaching, or as personal, as public education. We started some of the first public schools in America and advocated for legislation to help make education accessible to everyone.

Today, California Masons continue to support public education through relevant, impactful programs that reach some of the most disadvantaged communities in our state - including a special focus on early childhood literacy.


The Green Dragons special focus on early childhood literacy is by participating in “Read Across America.”  Our members attend local elementary schools on Read Across America Day and read Dr. Suess stories to the children.
