Light it Red for Dyslexia 2020
Light it Red for Dyslexia Awareness is a volunteer initiative by Code REaD Dyslexia Network, a national registered charity, to light significant monuments, buildings and landmarks across Australia in RED for Dyslexia Awareness.
Ask any dyslexic about their school experience and they will tell you about the gut wrenching fear of receiving back their school work covered in red crosses and comments. When Light it Red started in 2015, it was about taking back the power of that colour to raise awareness. The colour influenced our name Code Read (pronounced RED) Dyslexia Network. Red is disruptive and cannot be ignored but it also highlights the urgency of the situation. In effect we wanted to say that it is time to stop sweeping this important issue under the carpet and take action.
Why all the RED?
OUR VISION IS FOR ALL PEOPLE WITH DYSLEXIA TO BE UNDERSTOOD, ACKNOWLEDGED, EMPOWERED AND TO HAVE EQUAL ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITY.
