Deaf Grassroots Movement Rally 2018

WATCH: Deaf Grassroots Movement Rally at U.S. Capitol in Washington the District of Columbia on March 8th, 2018.

WASHINGTON -- The Deaf Grassroots Movement is an organization that pushes for Deaf rights, such as an end to discrimination in jobs and education and to provide equal access as facilitate an historical nationwide civil rights event to bring awareness to the Deaf community and to issues with access to communication, educational barriers and employment discrimination.

Sean Markel, the chairperson for the Deaf Grassroots Movement Rally on March 8th, 2018. We will be marching from Gallaudet University starting at 1030am all the way to here, at the United States Capitol, there will be a platform, with microphones and ASL interpreters. There will be chairs provided for the rally attendees as well.

As of today, Markel have put together a total of 14 presenters including 3 Senators, he will give information on their names, their positions, pictures for those who will be here to speak, and they will be speaking for up to 10 minutes each. You may ask, what's the rally for? We are Deaf and we are coming here to show the legislators that we exist, to raise awareness about the struggles we face on a daily basis in our lives, such as communication accessibility, education, and jobs, employment.

He have spoken with several legislators, the U.S. Capitol Police, and we have discussed the rally. Now, there are rules for the rally, you can bring signs, but you cannot have wood sticks for the signs, its illegal, be proud, be friendly, enjoy the occasion so we can show our Deaf spirit.

Just walk, stay calm, be courteous when you're here at U.S. Capitol, the legislators are willing to listen to your message, it's really important that we educate them, for years and years, the Deaf community has been complaining about a lot of things and it's time that we come and let them know.

The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) has been working hard for years too, we need to show gratitude and thank them for their advocacy on our behalf. They have accomplished in some improvements, but for other issues, it continues to be a struggle and this is why we must all come together and rally.

The Senators and Representatives will listen, in the long term it will be good for us, to raise issues such as defending our rights, stop oppressive tactics, and remove misconceptions about Deaf people.

DGM and NAD are working together on legislative training on March 7th, NAD will be providing the training and Gallaudet University will give us a meeting room. He is working on getting State Associations and DGM State Representatives to come, up to 100 people, the training will be all day and then the next day on March 8th on Thursday, after the program at the rally, about 2 hours, the State Associations and DGM State Representatives will go see their Senators and Representatives in the U.S. Capitol.

Those who are interested to attend the legislative training, please let Wesley Arey know. For those who are in State Associations, please contact NAD President, Melissa Draganac-Hawk. In the long term, the Senators and Representatives will appreciate our initiative to raise awareness about our issues, especially in Communication Accessibility, Education, and Employment. Please save the date, come to support the root cause of the Rally, US, the Deaf Americans! See you all there on March 8, 2018.

We're still facing inequality access of opportunities as hearing people does. We will not fight as individuals. We will fight as a team to make a change.

Deaf Grassroots Movement Rally! Be there on March 8th, 2018.
