Partnerships help us achieve more
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”~ African proverb
There is strength in numbers
When it comes to advocating for people with hearing loss, joining forces is the way to go. HLAA-WA believes that we can go farther and reach higher when we work together toward shared accessibility goals. We strive to build relationships, share knowledge, and learn from other advocates across Washington State.
Working with the Washington Senior Lobby, we passed the Telecoil-Bluetooth Consumer Education Law. Collaborating with the Seattle-based 4Culture and Arts Fund helped the Seattle Rep get grants to improve their accessibility. And partnering with our state’s Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing enables us both to better support to the hearing loss community.
Do you have a partnership opportunity? We’d love to hear from you. Please contact us: email@example.com.

Collaborating with 4Culture and ArtsFund helped The Seattle Rep secure funding for the Rep’s accessibility efforts, including hearing loops. Taproot Theater, the Federal Way Performing Arts Center, and Town Hall Seattle have also worked with us to get “in the loop” with hearing accessibility.
We all benefit when we raise our voices together for people who are marginalized and in need of help
