Many organizations working together can often accomplish more than organizations working alone. Sometimes it is helpful for Deaf organizations to join cross-disability councils or coalitions to work toward common goals. This may mean teaching others about deaf inclusion in cross-disability work. Learn how hundreds of people with different disabilities worked together in Myanmar to establish a cross-disability council. The article describes how the council succeeded in involving leaders with different disabilities, including Deaf people. They began with a large, national conference. The article shares examples of how the conference organizers accommodated the needs of people with different disabilities. This included providing sign language interpreters and also live transcription projected onto a screen. Another web page at the same website explains in more detail how to make conferences accessible for people with disabilities, including deaf people.
The website is accessible for people using screen reading software with minimal difficulty.
