The Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center is Excited to Introduce:
Do you need an interpreter, CART, or other service for communication at an upcoming event? Have you been told “no” or “bring your own interpreter” or “ask your family to interpret”?
- This is a violation of the ADA, and
- CREEC can help!
Step 1: Contact CREEC; describe the problem: FAC@creeclaw.org
Step 2: Hire CREEC at no cost.
Step 3: CREEC writes a letter to the doctor, hospital, venue, event, or other provider. CREEC’s letter educates the provider and advocates for effective communication.
Examples: after CREEC wrote an FAC letter….
- … a doctor’s office agreed to provide interpreters for a Deaf couple’s appointments.
- … a rehabilitation hospital agreed to provide interpreters for a Deaf woman recovering from surgery.
- … an entertainment venue agreed to provide interpreters for a Deaf fan at a rock concert.
