In Florida, supporters of those with hearing loss went to the state capitol to petition the government for extended services for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Advocates are pushing for state licensure of interpreters, improved educational services, better access to emergency preparedness plans, increased use of captioning for films and television broadcasts and increased funding for direct services, according to a written release.

The headline for the article: “Deaf plan silent protest at Capitol”.

Aren’t things always silent for the deaf?
