There are many laws, policies, and rules that protect us, yet many government agencies
There are many laws, policies, and rules that protect us, yet many government agencies and private businesses still deny us our rights. The National Association of the Deaf is constantly fighting many entities for violating our rights, and also working with many corporations to improve services as well as promoting new laws and regulations that give us better lives. Everyone deserves to be treated equally with respect and dignity. What do we do when our rights are denied? This webinar will touch on many ways that each of us can advocate for ourselves and others, and to empower all of us to achieve equality.
