VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: Kim is standing in the NAD Headquarters lobby. The NAD logo is at the upper right corner.

“LEGISLATIVE TIPS” appears in white text inside a blue border box, “WITH KIM” is a transparent text inside a small white box.

KIM: State legislators propose lots of bills, and sometimes a couple of them will impact the deaf community. When you watch and wait to discuss with other board members and other people, the results will not be in your favor. You have to respond quickly with your support or opposition and share why. This is key. When you wait…

A freeze frame of Kim signing ‘wait’ in pixelated blue overlay and gray background. Below Kim’s hands are black text “DON’T DELAY” in white banner.

KIM: …they will not wait for us. So, respond quickly. We encourage each state to choose several people to continuously watch and to respond when needed.

Video cuts to grey background with the NAD logo quickly changing in different bright colors from teal to white to black to hot pink to green to orange to teal to yellow to purple to finally the official NAD logo with copyright text underneath “The National Association of the Deaf (c) 2019 All Rights Reserved”.
