There are two very important events coming up next week and we want to alert MDSC members to please attend these events and advocate for deaf/hard of hearing senior citizens. These events are:

7th Annual Legislative Awareness Day
Monday, February 15, 2016
2:30 p.m.
Legislative Services Building
Annapolis, MD

At the LAD event, you will meet with other deaf/hard of hearing people, and also with your district legislators. This is a chance to let the legislators know the needs of deaf/hard of hearing senior citizens. Interpreters will be provided.

The second event is:

Friday, February 19, 2016
Office of Deaf & Hard of Hearing (ODHH)
Advisory Committee Meeting

MACDHH Town Hall Meeting to follow
2:00 p.m.
Maryland Department of Transportation
7201 Corporate Center Drive
Hanover, MD

At these meetings, you will learn what ODHH is doing and what kinds of plans they have for their programs. During the town hall meeting, you will have the opportunity to express your opinions on what is needed for Maryland’s deaf/hard of hearing senior citizens in the way of services, programs, and improved accessibility.

Please try to attend these events and help make MDSC a recognized force in the Maryland community.
