Vermont Deaf Rights Advocates Push for Legislative Action

VTDigger Article addresses Vermont Deaf Rights Advocates Push for Improved Services

Vermont Deaf Rights Advocates organized a very successful and informative Deaf Rights Day at the Vermont Statehouse on January 29, 2015. This VT Digger article covers some of the events of the day.  The article also provides an overview of the new bills being introduced in the legislature to improve services for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.  The bills aim to examine and improve educational opportunities and services for children and families who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Nine East Network staff were happy to attend Deaf Rights Day, and we stand in support of Vermont Deaf Rights Advocates for greater services for all of the deaf and hard of hearing people in Vermont.
