Please help us persuade Netflix to add "Louder Than Words" in their documentary line up. "Louder Than Words" is a seven-year documentary about two families who went against the cultural beliefs of their community and offered their deaf children a second chance at hearing.

The breakthrough technology of cochlear implants has continued to create a deep divide between the Deaf community (ASL users) and those who support cochlear implants. The tension between these two groups have only grown stronger with the growing popularity of cochlear implants within the deaf pediatric population.

Now you may be asking yourself "Why would anyone refuse medical intervention that gives a child a 2nd chance at hearing?" This documentary gives viewers an unique, inside perspective of the choices parents of deaf children face and the controversy surrounding cochlear implants.

Spoiler Alert:  Important issue about early language acquisition is addressed in this documentary.  (Using sign language with deaf infants is strongly recommended.)

Netflix has been on the fence about picking up this documentary. Please sign this petition and let Netflix know that you would like to see this documentary on their platform.
