Advocating for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Recorded On: 04/06/2022


As a disability litigator, Andrew November's job is to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves, or at the very least, fight right alongside. You do not have to be a disability litigator to ally with a marginalized group. During this session, we will spend the first half focusing on Deaf Rights, advocating for Deaf individuals, and accessibility, including techniques such as closed captioning. For the second half-hour, Keri November, Andrew's wife, will teach basic American Sign Language so that you have some knowledge and awareness if you meet a Deaf signer. Total CEU 0.1. Product will expire 30 days from registration.
