Politics and the Deaf, DGM

by Marisa Salzer
(Montesano, WA USA)

Newly formed non-connected political action committee Politics and the Deaf (PATD), has recently partnered with activist group, Deaf Grassroots Movement (DGM).
The partnership was formed to create nationwide support in the Deaf Community to restore its human rights. The Deaf Community has struggled for years in areas such as education, language deprivation and public accommodations. All of these affect the economy in a negative way. Politics and the Deaf has created positive solutions for each of these issues that will benefit both the economy and the Deaf Community. Their motto is "It's a moral issue."
Politics and the Deaf's main mission is composed of two parts: to reconnect the Deaf Community with politics to restore its human rights, and secondly, to create a lifetime app to better connect Deaf individuals throughout the nation to inform on bills and laws that can affect them as well as to offer support when an individual reaches out for help via the app.
Deaf Grassroots Movement will kick off the campaign by rallying in each state on Wednesday, May 4, 2016, at their state's capitol building. The rally aims to bring peaceful awareness to the daily struggles and violations of human rights the Deaf Community faces every day.
On September 9, Politics and the Deaf will host a town hall meeting with presidential nominees from each party. The meeting will take place at the California School for the Deaf and will focus on topics related to Deaf issues. Moderators will be Julie Rems-Smario and Dr. Patricia Hughe, both of Calif. and Dr. Glenn B. Anderson of Ark.
With 28 million Deaf/Hard of Hearing individuals in the United States, the movement will be big and anticipates to make a lasting impact on the Deaf Community.
Deaf Grassroots Movement is directed by Daisy Bravo of Littleton, Colo. Politics and the Deaf is managed by partners Melvin Patterson of Oakland, Calif., Chris Fitzgerald of Roseville, Calf. and Marisa Salzer of Montesano, Wash.
Politics and the Deaf is registered and regulated by the Federal Election Committee. For more information, visit www.politicsandthedeaf.com.
