Dear Dr. Norman: The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) submits its strongest affirmation of endorsement and support to the Gallaudet University Museum. A museum that details and preserves the rich history and heritage of Gallaudet University is critically necessary to demonstrate to the world the incredible contributions and innovations of deaf individuals who have been blessed to experience academic and scholarly learning on this campus.

Endorsement to the Gallaudet University Museum NBDA

Dear Dr. Norman, the National Black Deaf Advocates (NBDA) is the official advocacy organization for thousands of Black Deaf and hard of hearing people in the United States. Black deaf leaders were concerned that Black Deaf and hard of hearing Americans are not adequately represented in leadership and policy decision-making activities affecting their lives so they established NBDA in 1982.
