Deaf Disability Rights activist Joanne Jauregui on the 504 protests and the unique implications on the deaf community

About This Item

In this oral history interview, deaf protester Joanne Jauregui discusses her participation in the 504 protests. Working as a teacher in a deaf school, and a full-time mother, she came to the Federal Building for a few hours each evening after work. She notes the specific place of deaf protesters within the movement, and the separation they felt from organizers due to language barriers. She recalls one specific meeting with a congressman who was deeply moved by individual pleas of why 504 mattered to different people.
