The Capsule Group and Sign Shares Inc./International are holding a rally in Galveston, Texas on Friday, June 3, 2016 to address Deaf community concerns regarding the use of Video Remote Interpreting, or VRI, in health care settings.
From focus groups, we discovered some individuals are not receiving a choice regarding the way they need to communicate with their health care providers and are being provided with VRI.
Many people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or DeafBlind don’t know they have the choice to request a form of communication that doesn’t provide a barrier to understanding what their health care providers say.
If you prefer or feel a Certified, Live Interpreter matches your accommodations that the American With Disabilities Act requires, come join the Galveston rally to empower your voice and your communities!
The rally will be held from 1p.m.-4 p.m. at Galveston City Hall, Room 100, 823 25th St, Galveston, TX 77550.
The meeting promptly starts at 1 p.m. in the meeting room and finishes on the steps of Galveston City Hall.
Light refreshments will be provided.
If you plan to attend, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and meet us in Room 100 at the Galveston City Hall.
