"I joined DLC because I experienced extreme accessibility barriers for the first time in the workplace. This challenge propelled me to seek others in the Deaf community and the disability advocacy space to learn what has been done and can be done to normalize access everywhere for everyone. Joining the DLC has connected me to a diverse community of accessibility advocates I can learn with and from. I’m grateful to be able to hear every member’s lived experience, support their causes, and contribute my own story and expertise to a collective purpose." -Nicki Tsang
