My name is Hallye B. Boughner. For the past week, I attended a Summer Institute at My Sister's Place. At My Sister’s Place, I had the privilege of meeting four young ladies named Jaylene Anderson, Raquel Negrón, Kaci Harris, and Lexy Downes, who all share the same vision that I have for change.  My Sister's Place, also known as MSP, is an organization that strives to "end domestic violence and human trafficking through advocacy and community education". MSP has created a comfortable, secure, supportive, and respectful environment of equality. The program was an interactive, learning experience for the youth who participated. We discussed many issues in today's society, for example, Ableism and the lack of awareness on this issue. The program strives to bring awareness to important issues, such as discrimination against people with different disabilities. 

During the program, we met a woman named Jacqueline Mamorsky, who struggles with hearing loss. Jacqueline’s story of her disability resonated with each of us on a deeper level. It sparked an action plan to build awareness on the daily struggles that people with hearing loss experience. Jacqueline shared a story with us about a time she got stranded at Grand Central Station during a thunderstorm. Without closed captions on the Service Advisory screen board, she had to wait hours for her father to assist her in the chaos, which made her feel helpless. Due to Jacqueline’s heart-wrenching story, we are trying to promote the use of closed captions or other accommodations in train stations, in order to help people with hearing loss feel more secure in the midst of a crisis. She graduated from RIT and Binghamton University and SUNY for undergraduate and graduate careers. Jackie now has a job as a project coordinator at My Sisters Place. Her objective is to promote the rights of those with hearing loss and to empower the deaf community with opportunities that define a good quality of life. If you aspire to show your support and improve the everyday quality of life then please sign this petition. Share with co-workers, family, friends, etc. You have the power to make an impact. Let's work together to make this world a better place. We can start by helping to grant those with hearing loss the opportunity to feel safe, and empowered. Don't take your power for granted, use your power to help others who may not have it.
