— NAD deals with racism issues

Melissa S. Draganac-Hawk, the NAD president,
said in her  recent video that systemic racism must
be eliminated, while at the same time
affirming the association’s support for
National Black Deaf Advocates. This is an
important step for the Deaf Community.

gestures from the deaf that hearing people should
understand. They should, but there are always
some hearing people that just understand no
gestures at all! This is sad.


— bus drivers do not wear face masks

lip reader.
