Dyslexia Day at the Capitol– February 12, 2019

Please reach out to your legislators if you have not done so already to let them know that we’ll be there this Tuesday and would love for them to join us for breakfast to discuss dyslexia and how it has impacted our families. Invitations were hand-delivered to their offices last week, but a phone call or email from a constituent makes a big impact and will ensure a better turnout.

Use this link to find your legislators. Just enter your address in the search box on the right hand side of the page.

We are very excited about SB48, sponsored by Chairman P.K. Martin and need everyone to reach out to their senators to urge them to support this bill. Once it crosses over to the house, we’ll be focussed on reaching all of our representatives as well.

DYSLEXIA DAY SCHEDULE 

8:00-9:00– Capitol Room 216–Coffee and light breakfast for all Dyslexia Day participants and legislators

9:45-Group Photo with Governor Kemp–North Stairs

10:00-1:00 –Room 341 will be a central meeting place for our group but during this time, we’ll also have groups sitting in the galleries of both the House and the Senate sessions. We’ll also have volunteers available to help you call your senators and representative to the ropes to speak with them directly if they can’t make it to breakfast.

12:00-1:00– Optional visits to legislator’s offices to drop off information.

We’ll have Dyslexia Day stickers to pass out on Tuesday, so if you get there after 9 AM and are looking for us, look for the stickers.

Here is some information on parking options close to the capitol if you’re planning on driving. Marta is a great option as well. Don’t forget to bring your photo ID to get through security when you arrive.

We’ll be updating this page frequently between now and February 12th with event details as they become available. Please check back often, and be sure to follow us on Facebook for more information.
