"As a person with hearing loss, I have seen bullying first hand. I’ve been called ‘stupid,’ ‘mule-headed,’ and have been nicknamed ‘La-La-Land Shanna.’ I simply want to be known as Shanna".
Shanna Groves of the blog LipReadingMom is putting forth the Campaign #StopHearingLossBullying with a petition.  By signing this petition you are saying NO to bullying and harassment to those in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community.  Help the more than 48 million people in the United States and Worldwide with deafness and hearing loss by bringing awareness to the need to stop this kind of harassment and bullying.  People who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing need acceptance, not rejection, to thrive in school and in the workplace.  
 Repeat this:

  "Hearing loss and deafness bullying ends...with ME."
