Video Description/Transcript

Decisions are made every day about deaf people’s lives without involving deaf people. This needs to change. The lived experience and knowledge of deaf community members must guide policy changes, strategic planning, and programs that are designed to reduce barriers and increase opportunities for deaf people in the United States.
