Major Announcement: HEARD #DeafinPrison Campaign Starting June 27, 2014

Four days ago, HEARD announces that they will be kicking off their national campaign on June 27, 2014 at midnight. They are asking everyone to re-tweet and use the hash-tag #DeafinPrison to create awareness about the abuse of and discrimination against deaf prisoners across the nation. Their goal with this campaign is that they are asking that you watch “Deaf In Prison” and then share your reactions, stories and/or any information you might have on social media using #DeafInPrison. 
The video will be available for 48 hours beginning at midnight (EST) Friday, June 27, 2014. For more specific information about where the viewings will be hosted, you can follow them on Facebook to be updated with the latest information.
