Hi I’m Jessica Kennedy. I’m here at my home in Minnesota. I’m an attorney, and a mom, and I lead the DeafHealth team. Like you all, we are Deaf advocates. And like you all, we believe that healthcare is a basic human right, not a privilege. But for too long, deaf communities have been denied that right. That needs to change. That change is HUGE. That change is possible; but we can’t do it alone. We need community support. We need your stories, your ideas, your insights. We need your vision of what accessible, equal healthcare looks like. “We know that there’s nothing about us, without us.” Our deaf communities must be centered in this change. Join us.
