Joel Garcia: Hello, my name is Joel Garcia and I'm a student, majoring in Social Work and Family Studies at Gallaudet. I'm currently involved with the Democratic National Convention. I want to talk about the ADA policy. The ADA is designed to create accessibility for the Disabled. Remember - the Senators, House Representatives, various people working at the Congress -- are aware of the disabled but only in the basic sense. It's really important for all of you who are disabled to get involved and become active in the political process... Especially those of you who are deaf! You should get involved with the political process so they (the Congress) will know and meet your needs for greater accessibility. It's really important for you to get involved and represent the deaf so they (the Congress) may validate us! Oh and I'm a proud Latino Deaf, also... Thank you!
