Together, We Can Make an Impact!

We all want to make the world a better place, to leave it a little bit better than the way we found it. We want to make an impact. This is true whether you have a hearing loss or not. 

HLAA has been making a difference in the lives of people with hearing loss for nearly four decades. Some of those differences might not be so obvious. Perhaps someone got enough encouragement and support from their chapter to finally do something about their hearing loss. Some changes might have been on a larger scale, such as local and national advocacy work that resulted in new legislation or gave people with hearing loss more rights. Impact can be made in many different ways and on many different levels.

What Can You Do To Help Us Make an Impact?

Sometimes making an impact is not easy—it takes work. HLAA is a relatively small organization, but with you—our members, chapters, Walk4Hearing participants, convention attendees, donors, and many others—we can make an impact in the lives of people with hearing loss in communities across the country.

So what can you do to make an impact? It’s simple: get involved. It doesn’t matter how—join HLAA, find a local chapter, participate in a Walk4Hearing event, attend a convention, donate, or self-advocate—just get involved!

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
