REMOVAL OF AGBELL'S PLAQUE AND RENAMING AGBELL HALL!

qRight now, we have huge issue with AGBELL's letter to Pepsi. If you are unsure about that, I suggest you go www.deafread.com. Catch up on your deafnews!

Now, I dont know if all of you have been to RIT campus or you have and might overlooked. Or you have noticed that RIT have a dorm named after Alexander Graham Bell.

Bell dorm has a plaque that say about his accomplishments and so on.. one thing that really bothers me the most is that NTID still follow and copy his ideas today (i dont memorize the exact wordings).

AGBell's ideas:
Deaf people cannot marry each together (to prevent making more deaf babies and prevent from spreading ASL)
Deaf people cannot become teachers (because deaf teachers cannot correct deaf student's speeches and prevent from teaching ASL)

in the bottom line, he do not support deaf people to use ASL.


so anyway.. i need your help to sign this petition..
