January 11, 2018 - Press Conference

Arizona Leading the Way 
in Serving the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

PHOENIX (Jan. 9, 2018) – On Jan. 11 at 1 p.m. The Arizona Commission for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing (ACDHH) will hold a press conference in conjunction with Arizona House and Senate to celebrate Arizona becoming the national leader in serving the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

Arizona has become the first state in the nation to provide live stream text for committee hearings at the Arizona House and Senate. ACDHH has partnered with the Arizona House and Senate to coordinate captioning requests for Deaf and Hard of Hearing legislators with Relay Conference Captioning (RCC) through Arizona Relay Service.

Additionally, in December 2016, Arizona became the second state in the nation to offer looping technology in the hearing rooms and main chambers in both the State House and Senate.

These milestones will allow the more than 1.1 million Arizonans who are living with hearing loss to better participate in state-level government processes.


WHAT:            Press conference, proclamation reading and plaque presentation

                        Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Yee and Representative Heather Carter will be in attendance

WHERE:         Arizona Capitol Rose Garden
                       1700 W Washington St
                       Phoenix, AZ 85007

WHEN:            Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018
1 – 1:30 p.m.

Sign Language Interpreters and mobile real-time captioning will be provided.

About ACDHH:
Established in 1977 to improve the quality of life for deaf and hard of hearing residents, ACDHH serves as a statewide information referral center for issues related to people with hearing loss and aspires to be a national leader in communication access, support services and community empowerment throughout the state. The purpose of the organization, and its commissioners, is to ensure, in partnership with the public and private sector, accessibility for the deaf and hard of hearing to improve their quality of life.
