Hello to the Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing communities and hearing allies. You are invited to the Martin Luther King Holiday Celebration on January 18, 2016 at the Ordway Center

Awards will be given during the 11 am program. The Hon. Michael J. Davis, one of the keynote speakers, will be honored for his work as a judge. Another speaker is Talila Lewis. She is a champion in her own right. As an attorney, and the founder of HEARD, she is a passionate advocate for the Deaf community. She works to ensure people get full communication access during the legal process. I will let her share her amazing story on January 18. She is being honored for how she works to make sure the deaf, deaf blind and hard of hearing people live with a sense of safety.
