Dear Congressman/Congresswoman (last name):
I am writing to ask that you consider joining the Congressional Dyslexia Caucus, formed to work across party lines to educate members and the public about dyslexia. There is much work to be done in raising awareness about dyslexia and making policy changes that create opportunity for all dyslexics and remove barriers to success. I urge you to join Rep. Julia Brownley and Rep. Lamar Smith in this effort today.
