DBC urges you to make your opposition to SB1240 known!
The following call to action comes from Tina Jo Breindel:
The Florida Association of the Deaf is opposed to SB1240 and they are alerting people about it. We stand by as FAD is working on a release to distribute…we are so ready to help. They are hosting a DHH Day (Deaf and Hard of Hearing Day) at the Capital in Tallahassee on March 13, ATTEND if u live nearby. Details for this event,http://www.pbcadfla.org/Deaf__Hard_Hearing.html.
SHOW your faces that will give great support for FAD that day as they meet with legislators to get endorsement for several bills: Deaf Children Bill of Rights, Interpreting Licensure, and adding wireless to Telecommunications Bill (that Florida Telecommunications Relay will be able to distribute wireless equipment to Deaf people!) and then the 4th one to make amends or to kill SB1240. For Florida residents, sign up as ur support will make MORE possible for FAD as every hand counts! For more information, please contact June McMahon at
