NEW YORK, NY - June 2010 - Mark Jackson, dedicated community leader and philanthropist, has been appointed Chairman of the Board of Literacy Partners.  In this role, Mr. Jackson will spearhead efforts to develop the organization?s new strategic plan, guide its finance committee and continue advocating on behalf of the 3.7 million adult New Yorkers who cannot read or write above the 5th grade level.

Mr. Jackson succeeds Peter Brown, whose leadership over many years engendered a strong, committed presence for Literacy Partners in Manhattan.  In his new role as Chair of New York City's only nationally accredited adult literacy program, Mr. Jackson will strive to heighten awareness of the important work of Literacy Partners. 

Mr. Jackson, a prominent litigator, is Chief Legal Officer of Dow Jones & Company, reporting directly to Les Hinton.  Before his appointment as Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Dow Jones in December 2007, Mr. Jackson was Associate General Counsel of HarperCollins Publishers.  Prior to joining HarperCollins, he was a partner in the litigation department of the Manhattan law firm of Squadron, Ellenoff, Plesent & Sheinfeld, where he worked from 1985 through 1997. 

"Literacy Partners is fortunate to have Mark Jackson in this important leadership role," said Susan McLean, Executive Director.  "We are delighted that Mark will be leading our organization to even greater achievements and recruiting new participants to the Literacy Partners family."

In addition to his involvement with Literacy Partners, Mr. Jackson represents a broad array of media interests in the newspaper, magazine, book publishing, motion picture and television industries.
