Communication Card Video Release – Press Event

Library metal signage in front of the new Appoquinimink Library in Middletown, DE

In September 2022, the revised Visor and Wallet Communication Cards for interactions between members of Law enforcement and Delaware residents who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing were released to the public and Police Officers throughout the state. 
At that time, a training video was under production with students at the Delaware School for the Deaf. We are now ready to release that video to the public and to Law Enforcement. 
This event will be held on Tuesday, April 18th at 1:00 pm at the Appoquinimink Library in Middletown, DE.  
We are looking for help in spreading the news about the event, as well as contacting potential dignitaries to speak at the event.
DAD Note: Appoquinimink (aka: Appo) recently moved to a brand new location on East Main Street and is no longer at the old location  on North Broad Street (Rt. 71).
– Thanks to Deaf Outreach for sharing the announcement.
