Leah Katz-Hernandez: The Media Party

From Saturday, August 23rd...

TRANSCRIPT

Leah Katz-Hernandez: Hello. We are now at a media party. This is supposedly one of the best events of the whole week. For the entire DNC hoopla, there will be over a hundred different events in Denver. And here's the Media party -- meaning that different media people like newspaper reporters, TV reporters, anchormen, even bloggers get to come her and mingle. We have press credentials like this; it's basically for access to events. Like, in Pepsi Center -- you will be able to enter in specific areas with this credential. And I came here to meet other reporters so I'm giving them business cards like this. I explain to them about the deaf people, give them exposure on our blog -- I really want to show that deaf people are great! Hopefully they will go look and get more awareness of us the deaf people. Thank you and it's a fun event so take a look around!

Leah, that is wonderful that your group is helping people be more aware of our existence as deaf people. Perhaps your group should decide on a few specific questions to ask important people - the same ones of whatever are the hot issues then you get a good sampling of the current trends of people's way of thinking today. Good luck!
