What’s With the Purple?

Why purple?

I like it, for starters.

But it’s also part of the color scheme of the logo of the Hearing Loss of Association of America. I’m a fan of HLAA, and a member, and a member of the board. I’m grateful to it for advocacy and support on the national and local levels. And for the many friends I’ve made through the organization.

For more information, and for the location of chapters, go to Hearing Loss Association of America.imgres

You might also want to look at the websites for The Association of Late Deafened Adults (ALDA), The National Association of the Deaf (NAD), AG Bell, and Gallaudet University. They all have useful information, local chapters, and many resources to offer to the deaf and hard of hearing.

  1. This seems more and more relevant to me, though I am a “hearing” person. But I know so many friends whose hearing is beginning to fail with age. I want to keep talking to them, and yet quite a few of them don’t admit that they have a problem yet. I hope this creates more awareness in the culture of how widespread it has become, especially as the baby boomers age.
