We are thrilled to bring students, families, educators, and advocates together to celebrate those states that are working toward, or now have, dyslexia legislation and policies that are raising awareness, better allocating resources, and changing the status quo in teacher preparation, early screening, and school-based interventions for those with dyslexia and reading difficulties.  

Join us on July 7th to re-energize our efforts to advocate for change. Here's how you can help:

  • Become a social media partner! Commit to spreading the word about the rally and raising awareness about dyslexia through your personal or organizational social media accounts. Follow us on the #sayDyslexia Rally Facebook Page.

  • Register to attend & bring a group! Let us know now that you will attend and how we can help you plan to mobilize a group of interested advocates to join you. This is a great option for organizations to support the continued advocacy efforts of their members, students, staff, and supporters – make sure your group is represented at this year's rally.

  • Support the rally planning team! Please be in touch if you or your organization can support the efforts of our local planners. The #sayDyslexia Rally is run by an all-volunteer team and all logistical support is most welcome.

  • Get connected now to stay informed! Leave us your email so we can send you updates.
