Equality important for people who are Deaf and hard of hearing
Barb Downey is a Facilitator at DeafBlind Ontario Services. She is a staunch advocate for equality of the deaf community in day-to-day life. Downey hopes to help Deaf people enrich their lives and see equity for everyone. This desire stemmed from when Downey said she was denied a lot of opportunities when she was young. When in her 20s, she became involved in Deaf Culture, and began supporting equity for the Deaf community.
