Event description
Light it Red for Dyslexia is a volunteer initiative to light significant monuments, buildings and landmarks across Australia in RED.

About this Event

Why all the RED?

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.
