Pushing Limits

“AB 2072 and the Battle for American Sign Language (ASL)”
 
Passion, strategy, big money opponents, race issues,
counter narrative discourse, and children. The Deafhood
Forum was nothing if not stimulating. Tune in tomorrow
to challenge your ear-to-mind connection.
Friday, May 7 at 2:30 pm on KPFA 94.1 fm
 
With:
--Butch Zein, Executive Director of the Deafhood Foundation,
--Jim Brune and Tanja Bierschneider of DCARA,
--Rory Ostrink, the 2nd person to have a cochlear implant in the U.S.,
--Dave Eberwein, Conrad Baer, Philip Smith, and many others.
 
Shelley Berman and Adrienne Lauby join a meeting
organized to oppose the fiendish AB 2072 and learn
the context of that fight.  This law would send parents
of newborn deaf and hard-of-hearing children down a
path to partial fixes, medical intervention and adult
isolation.  The deaf community shines a light on the
lesser-known road of ASL where adults communicate
with fluency and affection.
