Dyslexia Day 2021

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Our advocacy efforts at the Capitol will look very different this year, however, we will have video presentations and a social media push to mark the day. Under the Gold Dome, there will be a House and Senate Resolution marking the day. Keep abreast of details on our Facebook Page and look for videos on our new YouTube Channel, Decoding Dyslexia GA. Use hashtags: #GAPOL #SayDyslexia #GADyslexiaAlly #ScreentoIntervene #DyslexiaDay2021

Join our Zoom! Please sign up for the Zoom link by way of this Eventbrite.

From Noon-1 PM, join the Zoom for Lunch with Brian Jordan. We’ll be talking to the Atlanta sports legend about Dyslexia and his personal story.

The Legislature’s houses have passed resolutions SR 95 and HR 105 to declare February 23rd, 2021 to be Dyslexia Day at the Capitol. See links for the sponsors of those bills and thank them for supporting our day of awareness.

Go here at 10 AM for the Opening Bell of the legislative day on their Livestream feeds: https://www.legis.ga.gov/

Thank you so much to each and every one of you who called, emailed, wrote or Tweeted to your Senators! Now it’s time to get started on the same process in the House! 


If you haven’t had a chance to see some of the coverage this bill has received, check out this story on WABE and this one in the AJC, and this passionate speech by Senator Jen Jordan on the floor of the senate.  

Your calls and emails helped us get the bill this far, but we need to stay active until we get SB48 passed in the house as well, so stay tuned for updates.  Thank you for all you do!
