COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) was present for the signing into law of Senate Bill 27, sponsored by Senator Beagle, along with passionate people from Ohio’s deaf and hard-of-hearing community.


The bill establishes the period of time annually between March 13th and April 15th as Ohio Deaf History Month. The month will serve to establish a time of the year when Ohio recognizes the significant contributions to the State that have been made by deaf and hard of hearing citizens.


“As Chair of the House State and Local Government Committee, I was glad to be able to help bring recognition to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community here in Ohio,” said Rep. Anielski. “We look forward to having discussions across the state about the contributions from our own deaf and hard-of-hearing neighbors and working to address their needs.”


Ohio’s first Deaf History Month will take place from March 13th to April 15th of 2018.
