Ready, Set, Advocate: Standing Together for Kids who are Deaf, Blind, or Deaf Blind

On Tuesday evening, February 16, at 7:30pm Eastern, advocates in the deaf, blind, and deafblind education fields hosted a community-wide virtual gathering to launch a comprehensive agenda for change with a new Congress and Administration. As the premier event of the Cogswell-Macy Action Network, this event briefed attendees on progress made to date to affect national legislative and regulatory improvements to America’s special education system. Attendees learned about immediate next steps in Congress, including introduction of the Alice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act, the strategies and tactics to be deployed in 2021 to support the goals of the Act, and how everyone can play a part in these critical efforts as we make the most of new opportunities to achieve results.

Due to technical difficulties, we do not have the video to share. We are sharing the audio recording with full captions.
