The Nagoya City Association of the Deaf will hold the symposium concerning the Deaf and the disaster on May 29, Sunday, 13:30-16:00, 2011 at Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture.

The theme is "The DNN JSL News and the Great East Japan Earthquake." The lecturer will be EZOE Satoshi, the Deaf leader of the Deaf News Network (DNN).

Ezoe started the DNN after he gathered the volunteers to cover the digital divide among the Deaf people at the time of the devastating disaster.

DNN has regularly delivered the JSL news. Until now it delivered more than 500 news chips with about over 190,000 hits.
