THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — On the heels of a major ruckus following a decision to invite an anti-LGBT speaker to their national conference, the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) is being threatened with a lawsuit for alleged mishandling of internal affairs.
This is from a document distributed through a reputable deaf academics listserv:
“Ladies and Gentlemen of the [NAD] Board: In regard to the actions taken by some NAD Board Members named herein, we are filing complaint and notice of intent to sue. The NAD Board, over a course of almost 20 years has actively oppressed, suppressed, and discriminated against the Library Friends Section of the NAD and the Deaf Community at large. . . .
Written by: Alec C. McFarlane, NAD/LFS Member and LFS Delegate Alec.McFarlane@gmail.com April 20, 2012 Distributed June 14, 2012. Approved by: Alice L. Hagemeyer, NAD Member and LFS ChairAlbert Berke, NAD/LFS Member and Past NAD Board Member”
I’ve posted the entire .pdf in the comments section below.
In other deaf-related news, Dr. Jeffery Gauer, a former professor at Gallaudet University has filed a lawsuit against the university for, among other things, “destroying his professional reputation.”
He has a website that details the issues:
