• ASL Cultural Movement and the Media

    3,068 views 3 years ago
    We had challenged AGB with our letters to rebut based on their response to Washington Post and now what?

    The relationship between social movement and the media is a complicated one. This vlog will highlight the struggles and possible solutions. We need to continue to take actions and I am asking the Deaf community to collaborate and take suggested actions to promote ASL through the media.

    "This website provides space to further examine the effects of Alexander Graham Bell on our society from multiple angles and multiple perspectives through first-source data. This means families with Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals are the central source of information. The goal is to shed light and provide voice to those with lived experiences and facilitate greater understanding of their past and current realities and truths."
