The listening sessions are designed to allow as many people as possible to provide input. We won’t be answering questions, but instead will be listening to you. If you have questions, we will gather them for a future response.
We have three different Students and Survivors listening sessions, spread over three weeks, to accommodate the demand within our webinar capacity. If you’re not a student or survivor, please don’t join this session – you might unintentionally block a student or survivor from participating. If you are a student or survivor, we would appreciate you joining one of these three sessions.
Listening sessions will use the Adobe Connect webinar service, which allows participants to queue up to make verbal comments. Participants can also type comments in a chat box. We expect a large number of participants, so please plan to keep your remarks brief – about 3 minutes – so more people can have a turn to speak.
Streaming ASL interpretation is available upon request. When you register for your choice of listening session, just select the ASL box.
