Transcript: Howard: Hello! I’d like to talk about the Deaf Grassroots Movement (DGM). The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) recognizes the extraordinary achievements of DGM in setting up rallies in the capitals of nearly all 50 states, each with many deaf people attending and showing the strength of the deaf community! The NAD congratulates, applauds, and thanks DGM for tremendously raising awareness of Deaf Culture, deaf people, ASL, and all the rights and needs of ours that are not being met now. DGM has powerfully raised this awareness on the state level, and the NAD expresses its deep appreciation for DGM’s work.
I remember in September 2015 when DGM hosted a national rally in the Nation’s Capitol in Washington, DC. The NAD observed the online discussion of DGM’s national rally, which was new and interesting. The NAD respected the independence and autonomy of DGM. When DGM invited me to present on behalf of the NAD, we gladly accepted this honor to join and support the national DGM rally. It was wonderful to see deaf people from all over the country come together for the national DGM rally, which included great testimony from various people on the challenges and barriers that deaf people continue to face every day in this country.
DGM successfully did it again in nearly all 50 states! NAD representatives were in attendance at some state DGM rallies providing their support while respecting DGM’s independent leadership role for the rallies.
We look forward to more successes from DGM, and hope that we can work together as partners – DGM and NAD – as we advocate for equality for all deaf people in employment, education, election access, and all parts of life. We want equality in everything for deaf people, no more inequality! The NAD thanks DGM for all of its important successes. Thank you!
