KIM: How can we be a good watchdog to various bills in different states? There are different ways to be a watchdog. Watching and checking your state legislator’s website everyday — whether it’s during the one-month, two-month, six-month, or year around session. This is one way. You can also sign up for alerts in some states. You can choose which topic you want to get alerts on such as “deaf”,

KIM: “hard of hearing”,

Below Kim’s hands is black text “HARD OF HEARING” in white banner.
