Even though nearly 218,495 individuals in Puerto Rico are members of this community, amplifying the needs of the deaf community is complicated. Discrimination and unequal access to justice and essential services are at the core of this challenge. As housing and social justice advocates, our role is to prioritize the integration of this community into our programs, legal support, and advocacy work. We are still aiming to grow our resources in sign language. As time goes by, there is an increasing need to obtain the necessary resources to reach more people on various topics. Family law, elders' rights, health rights, and protection against harassment and domestic violence are top priorities. Because these issues are intimately related to housing rights, creating educational resources could also help promote support to communities and members of the deaf community. The donations received in the following three months will be elemental to help us decide and analyze the possibilities of this accessibility initiative. We ask you to donate and share this information with other people. Solidarity is the capacity to shed light on every space and instance that needs justice.
