To help raise the “We’re Still Here!” message – that tens of thousands of polio survivors are still here and living with polio’s late effects – we’re lighting as many landmarks as we can in orange during the month of October. If you see any of these landmarks illuminated orange, take a photo and post it to our Facebook page or share it with us via email at [email protected]. Want a landmark in your area to participate? Use this letter template from our PAM Resources Page.
