The awful HR 620 passed in the House. That bill is bad for our rights. The fight is not over. Now, HR 620 goes to the Senate. The Senate may decide to vote or not vote on it. Find out which way your Reps voted: Note: “aye” means they supported the awful HR 620 while “nay” means they were against the bill.

We advocate for Deaf rights

CAD has advocated on the behalf of Deaf Californians since 1906.

California has 17,000 Deaf children.

Over 363,000 Deaf adults reside in California.

Inspired to help? Have advocacy ideas? We need you!

We believe in nothing about us Deaf People without us Deaf People, especially with policy-making, laws, and businesses.

We are alarmed with the growing epidemic of language deprived Deaf children due to the ideology of speaking and listening only promoted by the medical professionals.

Deaf children have the right to have full access to American Sign Language at school, home and with their Deaf peers.
