Today, the Chief Executive Officer of Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness, Inc., Dr. Patty Hughes, released the following statement on the death of George Floyd:
We are horrified and heartbroken by what happened to George Floyd and many other Black people. We acknowledge that there have been inequalities toward Black people, including Black Deaf people, here in our country for years. Enough is enough. We all must work together to stop violence and ignorance towards the Black community. GLAD continues to provide services to anyone who is deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-disabled, and deafblind with respect and without discrimination.
