NBDA appointed Dr. Elizabeth Moore and Ernest E. Garrett to represent the needs and interests of Black Deaf children and youth at the Child First Education Campaign that was held on February 10-12, 2012 on the campus of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.

The Child First Education Campaign, a joint effort of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) and the Conference of Educational Administrators of Schools and Programs for the Deaf (CEASD), seeks, among other things, to safeguard early and ongoing language access and development for all children from preschool through high school. The NAD and CEASD worked with representatives from ten deafness organizations – including NBDA – to develop clear goals, strategies, and a course of action to influence how the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Congress will reauthorize the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
