Deaf Grassroots Movement at Maine State Capitol

Deaf News - Maine residents rally to raise awareness of Deaf issues at the Maine State Capitol.

AUGUSTA, ME - More than 100 Mainers who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or both Deaf and Blind, converged on Augusta today as part of a national civil rights rally that took place at more than 45 state capitols.

The protestors marched around the state Capitol holding handmade signs as part the National Rally for Deaf Rights.

The DGM aims to fight for the rights of the Deaf and future generations in the Deaf community in all 50 states. On Wednesday all 50 state capitols will have a rally for Deaf Rights, including Augusta, Maine.


Curt Barsness, of Ellsworth, said the aim of the rally is to raise awareness of problems facing the Deaf community, which he said show no signs of improving.

Some of the issues concerning the group include the disappearance of American Sign Language as the language of instruction for Deaf children, denial of employment opportunities, discrimination in the workplace, lack of access to public services or appropriate accommodations in hospitals and doctors' offices.

The rally was part of the national Deaf Grassroots Movement that Barsness said is working to support participants' efforts to access opportunities in education, employment and linguistics.
