Regarding The Opposition To California’s AB 2072

The late Modern Deaf Communication founder Morton Warnow discovered that the
deaf community has a very high illiteracy rate. Perhaps the inability of the
large California deaf organizations to understand the AB2072 bill, based on
their blanket opposition, reflects the deepness of the illiteracy problem in the
deaf community. All they have to do is read the bill and they will read that
American Sign Language is included in the bill. The shameful opposition we're
seeing to AB2072 is becoming a major embarrassment to the whole class of people
with hearing loss.
