DSNC signature of AG Bell's name/plaque removal!

video

Dr. Hurwitz,

I went to North Carolina of Deaf Seniors for performance and one of your classmates, they wanted me to bring the poster of their signatures to you. The signatures are total 106 support to remove AG Bell's name and plaque.

It is heartfelt to see DSNC to share and stand together. DSNC is a role modeling for other Deaf seniors to be unity and support for this issues.
Thanks,
Ruthie.

Hearing people will be the first people to disgrac Bell as a plagiarist in the near future. All of his honors will be stripped off!

As usual, you and Deaf people will be the *last* ones to wake up.

Wonderful news.

I am glad all of you are still persisting with this goal. The removal of AGBell's name from the dorm is a very important cause.

Ruthie,
That's a wonderful example of promoting social justice for Deaf people wherever you go. Wow, petition with Deaf Seniors!?! May this open up idea for other Deaf Seniors to do the same again and again (as well as people of all ages, Deaf and hearing, until that building is free of honoring AGBell.
Good job, Ruthie!
