25 Years After DPN, Deaf STILL CAN’T?
A special message from Jerry Covell:
Next month, I will be participating in a 25th anniversary of the Deaf President Now protest at Gallaudet University where I was one of the student leaders that protested against the Board of Trustee to prove the world that a qualified deaf person can become a president of Gallaudet University and that “deaf people can do anything but hear”. Yet, a few weeks ago a deplorable incident occurred at a school for the deaf…..now we are basically being told “deaf people cannot do anything”. Such oppression and bigotry actually happened at the Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD) by a hearing principal and certain hearing co-workers on January 17, 2013. It is just unbelievable that this oppression is still happening in this day and age.
Please spread the words and share it.
