Andy signing: Hello and welcome to Florida Association of the Deaf news. Today we have important news to share with you. Here is Lissette Molina Wood, Presidenr of FAD.
Lissette signing: Last week we reported that our Sign Language Licensure Bill had only one Sponsor from the Senate. Last Friday (2/27) we are fortunate to have another sponsor on the House of Representative side. So this make it very important for us to be in Tallahassee to speak with our legislators and encourage them to support this bill. We need your help.
Andy: YES! Please make plans to attend the rally in Tallahassee on March 10th. We need for the legislaotrs to see us, listen to us, and help them realize how important this bill is to our community. Please be there!
Lissette: we need your help. We can't do it alone, please go on March 10th! Thank you
