    3 take-aways for me: deaf children deserve asl, legislators (since we were there at the capital, though more generally 'people in positions of power') need to include deaf people in the decision-making process when deciding their fate, and lets enjoy this amazing language!!! i also heard people talk about an expectation that there would be more people there, though im not sure why, since sacto is really in the middle of nowhere...
