— pocket pictures of signs

The Rocky Mountain ADA Center is distributing

of the Colorado Springs Police Department.

We have successful deaf people that are well
known – Marlee Matlin, Nyle DiMarco, past NBA
player Lance Allred, past NFL player Derrick

of hearing people, yet there are many
hearing people that are afraid of us!
Very sad.


— Life and Deaf

Again mentioning Marleee Matlin, it was
announced she will star in an upcoming
Disney comedy – Life and Deaf. Plus she is
the Executive Producer, the boss! She
supervises the producer, watches the money,
makes sure the production follows the
deadline and the quality of acting is
satisfactory. This is more responsibility
than just being an actor.
