National Association of the Deaf: It’s Time!

I know that I have written a couple or three about the organization, National Association of the Deaf (NAD) but I have not written anything about National Association of the Deaf for a few months and I believe that I must write another one as this is important that I talk about National Association of the Deaf a bit. Before I get into it, I want to share a bit information about the organization calls National Association of the Deaf or NAD for short with some of you guys and mix history with it a little. National Association of the Deaf is a civil rights and human rights organization just like some of other organizations such as National Rifle Association that represents for the people who owns guns for hunting or for protection. National Association of the Deaf represents for the Deaf community, people who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. I am Deaf myself, I am one of over a million Deaf people here in the United States who happens to be oppressed and discriminated daily so National Association of the Deaf is there to make sure that the Deaf community have the same rights as everybody else. That sounds all good doesn’t it? That we have an organization who protect our rights as Deaf American and making sure that we have equal access that everybody else has such as having access to a phone that we can make a call to anyone we wish with a technology that was invented for our use calls Video Relay Service, making sure that we can have the same pleasure watching some movies or television shows on our television with closed captions just the same way for others with audio.

National Association of the Deaf (NAD).

For several months I have begun to support an association or organization who represents Deaf and Hard of Hearing people nationally here in the united states until recently as I have realized something going with the association that sickens me especially to think that for few months I was supporting something that I thought who truly represents the Deaf community. That organization I am speaking of is National Association of the Deaf (NAD) who is an alliance of the Deaf community, who is responsible to advocate for the Deaf community when it comes to oppression, discrimination or any of unlawful actions by somebody and they are supposedly to be in the front of the battle making sure that the Deaf individuals have equality since National Association of the Deaf (NAD) founded in 1880 to take activism action in Milan against an organization named International Congress on the Education of the Deaf or ICED for short when International Congress on the Education of the Deaf (ICED) discouraged the use of American Sign Language in the education of the Deaf which is the natural language for the Deaf individuals. By discouraging the use of American Sign Language for the Deaf students by forcing the Deaf students in education to not use their natural language of American Sign Language, if they are caught using American Sign Language they would be punished by either having their hands slapped or tying their hands to their back and forcing them to use oral only instead so the many Deaf individuals group were against that so National Association of the Deaf (NAD) was born.

Chris Wagner, NAD President to Resign.

Chris Wagner, NAD.Some of you know about the heated protest going on around against the Deaf institution called Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (WPSD) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania due to oppression in the Deaf community by the administration of the Deaf institution Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (WPSD) and for some of you don’t know anything about the situation over at the Deaf institution Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf protests started by the Deaf community especially their students and their alumni in particulars you can read an article I written last week under the title “WPSD Oppression” or you can click here to read the article which I suggest that you do if you don’t know anything about the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf protests because they will be related to this article otherwise you won’t get the entire idea of what is going on with Chris Wagner. Chris Wagner is National Association of the Deaf (NAD) president who have few responsibilities which that includes to advocate for Deaf individuals in both human and civil rights especially to make sure that they are not being discriminated and represents the Deaf community hence National Association of the Deaf (NAD) is the association “of” not “for” the Deaf/Hard of Hearing individuals. Ever since Chris Wagner were elected for presidency position in National Association of the Deaf (NAD), National Association of the Deaf (NAD) have dwindles more than ever and is losing their reputation at all once too in the eyes of the public.
