25 Years After DPN, Deaf STILL CAN’T?

February 12, 2013

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”.

Please spread the words and share it.
