They’ll remember your video compared to the large stack of mail they get every day. #TipTuesday #NADLegislativeTip
[VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: Kim is standing in the NAD Headquarters lobby. The NAD logo is at the upper right corner.
“LEGISLATIVE TIPS” appears in white text inside a blue border box, “WITH KIM” is a transparent text inside a small white box.
KIM: If I want to communicate my support or opposition of a bill with a Legislator, I could send an e-mail, mail a letter, sit down with them… OR, I could do something different! I could make a video!

KIM: It is important to keep your video short; you can start with your talking points. When your video is done, be sure to caption it, provide a transcript, or have an interpreter do a voice over. When you send it in, Legislators will be very excited to see sign language! If you are not confident in captioning or providing a transcript for your video, contact the NAD, we can help!
