Justice Silenced Campaign – Re: Sept. 4th Meeting

http://www.kitescampaigns.org/campaign/justiced-silenced/

This is a PDF letter written to General Council Greg Buzzard. This letter was written as a follow-up to a meeting that took place on September 4th.

Represented were: AdvoCare, and C.U.R.E. National (Citizens United for the Rehabilitation of Errants), Embracing Lambs, Helping Educate to Advance the Rights of the Deaf (HEARD), and The Justice Silenced Campaign.

DeafInPrison.com was surely there in spirit.

The injustices that Deaf and Hard of Hearing Citizens endure in the Courts, interactions with Law Enforcement, and in the Correctional System, are beyond reproach.

We wish to emphasize the urgency for the establishment of a bipartisan/bicameral Congressional Caucus for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Citizens that would focus on common legislative objectives to assure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other laws that protect people with disabilities, in all aspects of the government, including, our Courts, Law Enforcement, and the Correctional System.

    1. Oops I meant to comment regarding the Colorado case – there’s a link on this page. I met Carrie through an association I belong to of Deaf and Hoh attorneys. She’s a bright light to all of us – late deafened, legally blind, in a wheelchair, raising a family of adopted, disabled kids and she’s a kick-*ss litigator.
