Mayor Adams: NYC Municipal Buildings to be lit in support of Made By Dislexia
New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced that he will light up three municipal buildings in turquoise, pink and purple colors to support Made By Dyslexia, a global charity that aims to help the world understand and value dyslexic thinking. The charity also provides free online training for teachers and workplaces to spot, support and empower dyslexic minds.
