CLARK: Hello everyone! This is for all the members of the Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Community in Kansas City. I want to let you know that MCDHH has partnered with us here at The Whole Person and we’ll be putting on a 2018 Town Hall Meeting. This will be hosted July 21 from 1-4 p.m. We will be meeting here at The Whole Person. We have plenty of parking space here. The reason for this town hall is to get a feel for what’s going on in the community. We want to hear you and support your ideas. We want to listen to you to help us improve. We as a state are continuing to improve our Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing support. In order to do that, we need your support and ideas. We need you to come out and work with us. We need your support as well. When we have your support, we can support you. If there are any accommodation needs that you have in order to come here—maybe you need tactile interpreting, maybe you need CART services provided, anything of that sort—please let us know in advance. We’re happy to make sure you are accommodated for this meeting. It’s important to make sure your needs are satisfied. If you have any questions, you can contact me or MCDHH to request accommodations. We are happy to help.
