Words on Wheels 
is a mobile, community writing center to help develop personal, professional, and civic writing skills and produce documents. This initiative addresses the fundamental need for productive and engaged citizens to develop, hone, and employ sustainable literacy practices, with a special focus on serving members of the greater Phoenix community that have historically been disenfranchised due to race, culture, poverty, individual trauma, and other social injustices.
