President Cordano, Kendall students testify before the D.C. Council

October 18, 2019


On Tuesday, October 15, President Cordano, along with three Kendall Demonstration Elementary School students, testified before the Committee on Government Operations of the Council of the District of Columbia in favor of a proposed bill to establish an Office on Deaf and Hard of Hearing in the District. The bill, designated B23-0147, was introduced in February by six of the 13 Councilmembers. Two other Councilmembers signed on as co-sponsors. Several other members of the local deaf community testified in writing and in person, including a number of Gallaudet alumni. We look forward to the Council’s decision.
