Advocate about Hearing Loss for Yourself First

                             — Then you can advocate for others

Georgia Fleischer found her passion – advocating for those with hearing loss for accommodations in live theater.  She is going to share that passion with us by speaking on Self-Advocacy of hearing loss at different levels as well as advocating as a group.

Georgia is very involved in the hearing loss community.  She had a progressive hearing loss from infancy and by age 50 she was profoundly deaf.  Georgia received her first cochlear implant in 1994 and a second implant in her other ear in 2006. She was Co-President of ALDA-Los Angeles for a few years, then joined HLAA-Los Angeles chapter.  She has been the Advocacy Chairman of that chapter for the last 4 years.  She is also involved with the CI Support Group in Los Angeles which meets every other month except during the summer.  Most recently, Georgia was the recipient of  the 2015 Marcia Dugan Advocacy Award at the HLAA Convention in St. Louis.
