The project is designed to bring attention to some core Deaf issues:
We are denied equal access to communication in education when parents are lied to about American Sign Language being a failure for the deaf and that cochlear implants are only the way to help deaf children learn. That is a lie, and denies us equal access to communication. One size does not fit all.
We are denied equal access to communication in our everday lives when we cannot get a qualified interpreter when it’s needed.
We are denied equal access to communication when businesses refuse to accept our relay calls or when a television show isn’t captioned, or when there’s no ticker screens in public transportation areas so we are aware of what is going on.
