Join us at the Deaf Rally 2012 in St. Louis!
Our Deaf activists and advocates,
You know that in history during Revolutionary War, Paul Revere galloped through the night warning about the British invading. That was April 18, 1775 ( I think ) Now today, February 3, 2012, I am e-mailing to everyone to please think about coming to St. Louis to band together to show those people at EHDI Conference at Union Station Downtown St. Louis on Sunday, March 4, Monday, March 5 and Tuesday March 6. There are people from various organizations coming to help us have a peaceful rally to show them that we preserve our sign language and culture. The power is in numbers.
So come and be ally! We need you to show up. We welcome every Deaf from Indiana to come and show EHDI how you feel about audism happening at ISD and the community.
Don't get mad! Get EVEN! Show them! STAND UP for your rights!
I am welcoming you to St. Louis, Missouri so let's get the ball rolling for next month's showdown on EHDI!
Join us in marching down Market Street in front of St. Louis Union Station in Deaf Rally 2012 march!
Let's march in our parade on Sunday, March 3! Come snow! Come cold! Come rain! Come sunshine! We will march from St. Louis City Hall to St. Louis Union Station. It is 20 minutes walk. We meet around noon at corner of Tucker and Market (northeast of City Hall building) There will be a sign "DEAF RALLY 2012 meets here. As soon as everyone gets together, we will walk down to St. Louis Union Station building. We will use sidewalk and have a leisure walk carrying signs and balloons. We can chat and be cheerful, but remindful of what transpired in Indianapolis and around the world. We need to send POWERFUL message to the world that it is time to stop. Where does it stop?
We need to start with EHDI because that is where they are hovering around babies like vultures. We need to stop them in tracks and align the information sharing and system to include deaf culture and sign language.
Onward we go! See you in St. Louis on Saturday, March 3 at the deaf club (GSLAD) More info to follow!
E-mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you are coming so we can work out details you may need. Hotel and motel accomodations are your responsibility. We can help you where it is at and more information you need - just hit me up and I will refer you.
