THE SA DEAF COMMUNITY CALLS ON

*THE STATE GOVERNMENT to urgently intervene and negotiate with all parties to ensure continued Deaf Community use of 262.

*DEAF CAN:DO to stop sale negotiations until the Government negotiations have occurred.

*DEAF CAN:DO to reconsider the not-for-profit community housing provider partnership proposal for 262.

If the above actions fail to stop the sale, THE COMMUNITY CALLS ON DEAF CAN:DO TO GIVE THE DEAF COMMUNITY ITS RIGHTFUL SHARE OF THE 262 SALE PROCEEDS/PROFITS SO THAT THE COMMUNITY CAN BUY A NEW HOME OF ITS OWN.

Since it was built until 2007, the Deaf Community owned 262.

In 2007 the Can:Do Group took over 262 by abolishing Deaf Community membership of the Community's Deaf Society.

The Can:Do Group paid the Community nothing for 262.

The Can:Do Group will make $3M - $4M from selling 262.

The Deaf Community has a right to a share of that money.

Why is this important?

If the 262 building is sold, where will Deaf people meet, learn, grow, celebrate, and be a part of our community?
