      LET'S MEET!

      In an effort to reach younger people with hearing loss, HLAA is laying the groundwork for an online social community through which members can interact, organize events, engage in advocacy efforts, access and upload captioned media, etc. Like many existing online social networks, this community will be largely user-driven, and thus we are calling on all readers (and especially our younger readers!) who might be interested in contributing. Contact Patrick Holkins at HLAA.

      CAPTIONING

      June 17, 2008: The news from Cammy Blackstone, legislative aide to Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier, is that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to pass their captioning ordinance today!
      This ordinance will make San Francisco City and County the first in the country to mandate that all televisions in public places within San Francisco County have their captioning on when the television is on. HLAA Members Dana Mulvany and Ron Vickery were on site for this.  They believe that there is another go round on this after this one.  We will let all of you know if so.  But the news from Cammy is that it PASSED!
