First Ever Deaf Returned Citizen Panel
On September 12, 2013, HEARD hosted a historic panel of Deaf returned citizens. Each panelist gave powerful testimony to the failure of our justice system to provide Deaf Access to Justice.

Photos of this amazing panel can be viewed here.  

Great turnout, great discussion, great forward momentum in the struggle for Deaf Access to Justice. A HUGE thank you to our amazing panelists for sharing amazing stories of survival.

Many thanks also to everyone who came out to learn about HEARD and to hear the stories of Deaf returned citizens.
