Bring Deaf Nation back to Barish Brothers

This petition had 1,691 supporters

DeafNation as we know it is being threatened. There is a pending litigation case between the owners of DeafNation - Jed and Joel Barish and Language People Inc, a hearing run company. Both sides had an tentative agreement to purchase DeafNation in 2015, but that agreement crumbled and both sides are heavy in battle.

Despite whatever is decided in court, what the DEAF COMMUNITY is seeing here is division and an environment breeding conflict, where there used to be a friendly place to go at the previous DeafNation Expo.

We as a community have sustained a great loss of a neutral and fun place operated for, and by the deaf. We wish to see DeafNation restored back to the rightful owners the Barish brothers and for the deaf community to have this venue put right again.
