Choosing My Group
When Dr. Rollins asked us to chose a social group/organization, I wanted to follow something that I find interesting. I chose to do National Association of the Deaf (NAD) becuase I have been interested about deaf people and their community for several years.
I believe that the NAD will be doable becuase of their history and what deaf people have been through to get where they are today. From being taught to not use their hands and to only use speech, to having Sign Language being considered a serious language. There are still issues till this day about deaf people using sing language. Deaf people are proud to be deaf and some people believe they are disabled. I am excited to see what this organization does for the Deaf community.
