DDVA Dyslexia Advocacy Day 2018

 

Untitled

Register HERE

Date of Meeting: Tuesday, 1/30/2018

Time of Meeting: 9:00am – 3:00pm

Location: General Assembly Building Under Construction (new address to follow)

Join DDVA on January 30, 2018 for a day of dyslexia advocacy work. On our 5th 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 to the almost 1 in 5 Virginians that are affected.

Let us know if you have an appointment with your legislator here:

Advocacy Day Canvassing Efforts – Log your appointment here soon!

Join us on January 29th at the Legend Brewing at 5:30pm to introduce ourselves, see old friends and learn about the next day’s advocacy work!

321 West 7th Street, Richmond, VA 23224

 

How can you help?

Reach out to your representatives TODAY to schedule a visit in your district office in the coming month or for a sit down in their office in Richmond on January 30th as the date grows closer. 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”?

Call your legislators and ask them to CO-SPONSOR our dyslexia bills.  Specific bill number and patrons coming soon.

And ask them if they would like to write a draft bill to support our efforts. If not this year, then next year! 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 2018 legislative session.
