Events at the Tri-Counties Branch of the IDA

PLEASE HELP US GET AB1369 PASSED!  This is the dyslexia bill.  We recently has our 5th Unanimous Vote in the CA Legislature. Your continued support of phone calls to California’s Legislators has proven to be effective.  The legislative process can move very quickly and in the last 12 hours the bill has moved to the Senate Floor!  We need phone calls – NOW. 

If your Senator IS listed below we ask that you CALL your Senator at their Capitol office Today or Monday.  Even if you have already called or written your Senator (listed below), please call again. The Senators listed below will now have their 1st opportunity to vote on AB 1369!  This will be the final vote.  

Please  ask for your Senator's  "aye" vote on AB 1369 when you call.

Check this list.  If your If your Senator IS listed below we ask that you CALL your Senator at their Capitol office Today or Monday.

If your Senator is not listed, it is because he or she has already voted on the bill during committee and we have their vote!

If you do not know who your Senator is click HERE .  You will also be able to locate your Senator's Capitol phone number.

We NEED EVERYONE to write Governor Jerry Brown.  Use this template letter HERE.  Mail to this address:

Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

Please send your letter to Gov. Brown as soon as possible.    When it passes the Senate (as early as next Tuesday) it will immediately go to the Governor's desk and he has 12 days to sign or veto the bill or by Sept. 30th depending on the date of the Senate Floor vote.  We understand that this is might be considered putting the cart before the horse, but at the end of legislative sessions the process moves very quickly!  This is why we have been advised by Frazier's office to do a dual campaign!  We cannot miss any opportunities for our voices to be heard!

Never Give Up
More than one in ten children in the US struggle with dyslexia or other language based learning difference.
Without appropriate intervention, struggling readers have a higher probability of not completing high school.
Their dreams are dashed. Their opportunities are diminished. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Literacy is one of the most important issues facing us today. Dyslexics can thrive if we all take advantage of neuroplasticity (the brain differences among us).  TCB strives to share with teachers and parents how they can hop on this train through our webinars, conferences, and other programs.  Einstein said, "Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid!"
