MDC Request Urgent Action From MI Deaf Community!

Note: You can download the letter at the bottom of the post.

Guest Vlogger Jeannette Johnson explains the letter in ASL:

The Michigan Deaf Community Committee is asking all of you in the Michigan Deaf Community, to send in this letter to your state representative and senator. Please replace anything that has [x] with the appropriate information, and alter the letter to be more personal. This will ensure that the legislators pay more attention to what we have to say.  To find out who your Michigan representative and senator are, go to and fill in your zip code. By you taking action on this, it is our ultimate hope that this will improve the quality of our lives, and as part of self-determination, enable us to further participate in the political process.
