DEAR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND VICE PRESIDENT PENCE –
PLEASE INCLUDE AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS IN YOUR VERY IMPORTANT, NATIONALLY TELEVISED, COVID-19 TASK FORCE UPDATES. DEAF PEOPLE NEED TO RECEIVE THE SAME CRITICALLY IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION AS ALL OTHER AMERICANS.
We are rallying support to ask President Trump, Vice President Pence, and leaders of the COVID-19 Task Force to include ASL interpreters in their vital daily press briefings. The only way we can overcome this pandemic is if we all stand together to ensure that all citizens can connect, keep working, and have access to essential care. But how can this happen if nearly one-million Deaf and Hard of hearing Americans do not have access to the most current information? If making the White House briefings accessible makes sense to you, JOIN US in making our hands and voices heard. Sign and share this petition!
