HEARD's Founder, Talila "TL" Lewis, drafted the transcript for this amazing video and consulted with the ACLU to create an American Sign Language video about police interaction with the Deaf Community. We are so thankful to our amazing allies at the ACLU & to Marlee Matlin for making our vision a reality! We look forward to seeing the final cut!
