Protest at Hearing Loss Conference

A group called Audism Free America held a march near the St. Louis City Hall yesterday afternoon. The 8 block trek ended at the Union Station Marriott Hotel, where some 1000 people gathered for the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Meeting. About 50 people showed up show support for sign language and to call for less emphasis on detecting early hearing loss and fixes like cochlear implants.
