VIDEO: Like the Mic
Learning to Like the Mic is a fantastic first step toward building hearing-friendly, inclusive public events and meetings. Like the Mic is the video campaign launched by Rooted in Rights and the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) to bring awareness that life should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability to hear. In the video, Evelyn, Devin, and Jayesh share their experiences with hearing loss and feeling excluded when accessible equipment like microphones are absent. All speaking participants in the video have first hand experience with hearing loss and encountering non-hearing friendly environments.
