Testimony from the Council
Over the past 14 years DEAFestival Los Angeles has become a very important and much anticipated tradition. I'd like to thank my former colleague, Tony Cardenas, and his staff for their work in promoting this festival during his time in office. I am glad to see the event continues to celebrate the accomplishments and draw attention to the needs of the deaf community.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the Annual DEAFestival Los Angeles as we welcome the deaf community to this great and rewarding experience. A free daylong event at Los Angeles City Hall, the DEAFestival celebrates the diversity of our great city by providing guidance to our youth in pursuing their goals and aspirations.
The DEAFestival's impressive work demonstrates its commitment to
empowering the deaf and hard-of-hearing community in the City of Los
Angeles. This annual tradition raises awareness about the needs of
this unique community and focuses on improving their quality of life.
I am proud to support this extraordinary celebration of our city's
Los Angeles is a city with great culture, diversity and energy-- it's what makes our city so great. DEAFestival Los Angeles is an opportunity for Angelenos to learn more about the Deaf community's accomplishments and contributions. The event also helps educate folks about the Deaf culture. I am proud to support DEAFestival Los Angeles. I look forward to another successful event.
I am so proud to join this year's DEAFestival, an event that has become a tradition for our city and which brings so much awareness to the meaningful and significant contributions the Deaf community in Los Angeles makes. This event not only helps to build self-esteem for our Deaf community, but equally as significant, it helps to connect many families to the services, resources and programs available to them, making this an invaluable city-wide event that we should all support!
Since 1999, the DEAFestival has helped thousands of our deaf and hard-of-hearing community members celebrate their uniqueness through education panels and awareness programs. Please visit the festival this year to learn how you can promote awareness in your community.
