A Letter from Kendall Parent

Thank you!

It's good to see folks from Clerc Center speaking out, and countering some of the misinformation.

Not being directly involved, I have no idea what plans are in place to continue the advocacy beyond the current level of protest. But so much has been accomplished in raising issues, opening up history to all of us, and bringing people together - I hope there is a way for all of that to continue.

From the activist poet Luis Rodriguez, this short poem says a lot about why it's important for Kendall and MSSD families to support the Gallaudet protest:

"It's not enough to prepare our children for the world. We must also
prepare the world for our children."
