DDVA Dyslexia Advocacy Day
SAVE THE DATE!
February 2, 2016
Join DDVA on February 2, 2016 for a day of dyslexia advocacy work. On our third annual organized advocacy day, we will bring the community together at the Richmond General Assembly Building to visit legislators in their offices to educate them on dyslexia by sharing our stories in order to direct their attention toward the almost 1 in 5 Virginians that are affected.
How can you help?
Reach out to your representatives TODAY to schedule a visit in your district office in the coming months. Our lobbying consultants have shared that a legislator with prior knowledge of dyslexia will be much more likely to vote for a proposed bill! This means we need to make our introductions now so that our time in Richmond will be used for further education and (hopefully) an introduction to the proposed legislation we would like to get passed.
What is ‘The Ask”?
Ask them if they would like to write a draft bill to support our efforts. DDVA will be happy to share some suggestions on areas to focus if the interest is there. If not, ask them to support the proposed bill(s) we hope to have during the 2016 legislative session.
T-SHIRTS ARE HERE!
ORDER YOUR TSHIRT BY 1/19/16 FOR GUARANTEED DELIVERY BEFORE FEB 2!
