Greetings!

We are collecting “What is Civic Engagement?” statements from deaf, deafblind, and hard of hearing individuals all over the State of Minnesota. We would like to invite you to participate.

This will be used in our virtual 2021 Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing Lobby Day on Tuesday, April 20, 2021!

Recording date and time

When is the recording? The recording will take place on Monday, March 22, 2021.

If you would like to contribute and have your statement featured, please show up anytime between 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at this zoom link. Just show up it will take no more than 15 minutes at the max of your time.

Register in advance to participate in this recording.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

What will happen

When you enter, you will practice your statement with the interpreter, and then we will begin to record. Your statement will be recorded and the interpreter will either sign or voice for you. 

After this, we will have captions and a descriptive transcript added to the video.

Example of what we expect

We ask the question, "What is Civic Engagement?"

You answer with a word, or a few words, or a sentence. 

Examples:

  • Access to education.
  • Knowing my rights.
  • Collaboration with the community.
  • Improving services.
  • All voices are heard.

This will be pieced together into one video for the pre-ceremony before the awards presentation.

Thank you,

Jessalyn Akerman-Frank and Team
