TEXT OF THE NADMAG ARTICLE:
Designed for Deaf Users
Another up and coming leader in consumer advocacy is Deaf Politics (DP), which is a blog at http://blog.deafpolitics.org, where deaf writers voluntarily contribute articles about deaf and non-deaf related political issues. Founder of DP, Jessica Thurber, said that she launched the blog in March 2010 with the hopes that it might serve as a springboard for eventually founding an organization. "I established DP with the goal of setting up a central information hub for deaf people to visit and gather much-needed resources, read up on all things political, and to connect with each other. Currently, there are no official 'members' [of DP] but I have been focusing on expanding the fan base so that there is a community ready for whenever the full website launches."
Her inspiration to found DP stemmed from a desire to create a "deaf-friendly site that focuses on all things political," she said. "I have a user-based/user-centric style in mind. I have a specific vision of what I want the website to be like and I look forward to making it a reality soon."
DP, which provides constant, current information from a variety of bloggers, also has a presence in the micro-blogging world, with 1,183 Facebook likes and upwards of 560 followers on Twitter.
