Statement #WhereIsTheInterpreter from RAD
Yesterday (Wednesday 16 June 2021) RAD, along with dozens of members of the deaf community, attended the Judicial Review hearing of the #WhereIsTheInterpreter campaign (Katherine Rowley v Minister for the Cabinet Office). It was a historic day for deaf people everywhere, and we are incredibly proud to have supported the campaign, and to have provided written evidence in support of the case.
Whilst a verdict has not yet been reached, we would like to congratulate everyone who has been involved in the campaign, and legal case. We really are stronger together!
Regardless of the outcome, we will continue to work tirelessly and collaboratively with others to defend, and promote, the needs and rights of deaf people.
#WhereIsTheInterpreter: Media briefing note: Thank you to RAD for the translation.
