Seattle City Council resolves to prioritize hearing access

The City of Seattle showed its commitment to true inclusiveness by passing a resolution of intent to improve hearing access in Seattle’s civic life. This Resolution (31641) comes on the heels of investments in a hearing loop for Seattle City Council chambers and more funds allocated to loop the Bertha Knight Landes room and others.

Councilmember Rasmussen was an early advocate for hearing access.

Tom Rasmussen and Cheri Perazzoli are pleased the loop is up and running.

Thank you to Tobias Pulliam and Monica Simmons for going the extra ten miles to make this happen, and for allowing us to share with them our struggles and needs. And our most superlative gratitude to Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, who’s been standing with us since our early days in 2012. Councilmember Rasmussen is retiring after years of passionate advocacy for people with disabilities.
