TAWNY: What’s happening on the NAD’s social media On Tuesdays you wonder? Yup, #takebackdeafed! On the second Tuesday of each month, we will share advocacy tips in ASL. Topics will vary from contacting your legislator, developing your message, to spreading the word on what to support, or if you want to discuss an issue with an agency or organization with the goal of building a relationship. Those ideas are important to education advocacy’s progress and to make sure our deaf and hard of hearing children are able to get access to education and language. If you have any ideas or questions related to the series or want to make a specific request, comment below! We’ll consider your comment and make sure you get all tools necessary to continue your advocacy!
