An estimated 1500 Deaf, Deaf-Blind, Hard-of-Hearing, and Hearing individuals from 13 states will attend a special three-day convention beginning on Friday, August 5 in Denton, Texas. This convention is one of seven conventions hosted this summer by Jehovah’s Witnesses presented entirely in American Sign Language. Please find attached the Preconvention Release announcing the upcoming convention at the Denton, Texas Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The convention last year received outstanding coverage from the Denton Record-Chronicle newspaper.

An effort is being made to alert the Deaf community in the 13 states with delegates attending the convention.
