Somethin' Big is Brewing in Milwaukee

The Deaf Bilingual Coalition of Indiana met on Feb. 24th to support the First Annual DBC conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Jill Lestina gave a PowerPoint presentation and discussed the A. G. Bell organization and its program; Auditory Verbal Therapy (AVT) and how the Deaf Bilingual Coalition came to be. We also talked about what is needed to help finance the first DBC conference. We formed a committee to assist with fundraising ideas, and providing free transportation for the Indiana folks to attend the conference. Here is the video clip of what was presented at the meeting.
