Does the NAD only take a few cases and ignore others? Watch to learn more #AboutTheNAD and how we handle different cases.

[TRANSCRIPT & DESC: The video is in black and white while a blue square spins in the center and opens up with a dark gray bar with white text “NAD Law & Advocacy Center”. A bright blue rectangle with black text “FYI #4” pops up below. Sean is wearing a dark blue NAD polo. The NAD logo is on the bottom right corner.

SEAN: Your case is important. Our strategy to fight the system that discriminates against deaf and hard of hearing and takes away our rights -- we take cases that change for ALL deaf and hard of hearing people. For cases that are still important but not affect change, we always refer to experts. When we share news about a settlement or a successful win, it seems we only take a few cases but in reality, we have many on-going and pending cases that we cannot discuss or share. We also have successfully settled on some cases that don’t allow us to publicly share about the results. Instead, we communicate those wins with changes and updates through our Advocacy Letters, How to File a Complaint page, Ask Howard Anything series, and Position Statements.

Video cuts to a gray background. Many small red and blue balls appear and swirl towards the center of the video before revealing the NAD logo in red, blue, and white with a water ripple effect. The copyright text appears in white underneath, “National Association of the Deaf, Copyright 2021, All Rights Reserved.”]
