HEARD Gives Invited Testimony at the U.S. Civil Rights Commission

On April 13, 2015, the United States Commission on Civil Rights held a briefing to address concerns regarding current police tactics, training & field implementation to help identify practices that could avoid deadly confrontations. HEARD provided testimony about police use of force against people with disabilities--especially those community members who also are members of other marginalized communities. 

Finalized written testimony is forthcoming.

Kickoff #DeafEd Twitter Chat

We are so pleased that Deaf Community members have decided to organize a monthly #DeafEd Twitter Chat after being inspired by HEARD's Deaf Youth advocates who hosted the first #DeafEd Twitter chat in November 2014. 

There is a long list of educational focused Twitter chats, but there has not been one focused on Deaf Education, until now. #DeafEd chat will occur the first Thursday of every month at 7:30 p.m. ET. Check out the Storify Story for the special kickoff chat on April 16th. 

For more information about how this Twitter chat came into fruition, please visit this blog page.
