MSG from Disability Rights Advocates

I am a litigation assistant at Disability Rights Advocates, a non-profit legal center in Berkeley, CA. We are currently working to remove access barriers at Kaiser healthcare facilities and are conducting an investigation into the experiences of Kaiser patients who are Deaf. We encourage anyone who has faced accessibility barriers, insensitivity from staff, or barriers to care at a Kaiser facility due to being Deaf to share their experiences with us. I can be reached by email at jpeterson@nulldralegal.org or by phone at (510) 665-8644. Thank you!
