Event: Historic Deaf Blind Rally in Louisiana

I want to congratulate my friend and fellow Usher Syndrome buddy, Dan Arabie, of Lafayette, LA on a job well done planning a historic Deaf Blind Rights Rally in Baton Rouge, LA last month.

Arabie and several other Deaf Blind organizational leaders led the protesters into a rally to fight the state government on lack of Support Service Providers for the Deaf Blind citizens of Louisiana. Louisiana, for decades, has continued to ignore the plight of hundreds of helpless Deaf Blind people, depriving them of the funding for the necessities for independence, even from their own tax dollars.

Please go to www.deafbayou.com and check out the Historic Deaf Blind Rally link, as well as exploring the whole website. Dan is the webmaster, he can be contacted at lsucajundan@cox.net .

High five to you all in Louisiana, fight for your right to live as everyone else.

tactile love,

Coco

    I am glad it is getting attention – it brought something to my attention – what is SSP that they kept talking about? Is it financial aid? A technology? A service group?

    Here’s hoping that the deaf blind of Louisiana can rally enough support to get what they need from government in this day and age!

    It is a good start and hopefully it will gain more and more support and momentum for the Deaf Blind people in Louisiana.
