MN 2017 Legislative Session 

Thank you to all who have supported our advocacy efforts this session! We simply couldn't have done it without your letters, calls, and presence. 

Many Thanks to Legislators for their steadfast support and tireless efforts: Senator Roger Chamberlain, Senator Chuck Wiger, Senator Carla Nelson, Senator Foung Hawj, Representative Brian Daniels, Representative Barb Haley, and many others.


We united as a collective group to illustrate an inequity MN children face in their educational experiences.  What an outpouring of camaraderie, support, and advocacy!  Seeing all of the children with their signs and hearing their voices as they joined us at the podium is a beautiful memory we won't soon forget!

In the afternoon, parents, students and advocates FILLED the seats in the Senate Education Policy hearing!  DD-MN had a powerful testimony with Lyn Haselmann, Dr. Amy Schulting, John Alexander, Jane Conlin, Amanda Cocoran, Luca Preza, and Johanna Honsa testifying on behalf of SF 453.

Star Tribune Journalist, Jean Hopfensperger, has attended Dyslexia Day the past three years and covered the event.  See the article here.

Visit our Facebook page for lots of video and photos of the day.  If you took pictures, please post on our page.

A big THANK YOU to everyone, especially our children, for helping DD-MN drive change for Minnesota's children!!


Thank you to our sponsors for making 2017 Dyslexia Day on the Hill and Rally possible!
