About Hearing Stories

A story's most important function is to remind us we are not alone in this world. Within the hearing loss community, sharing the lived experiences of hearing loss serves as a profound connective thread and as a catalyst for mutual support. It sparks conversations, advocacy, and collective efforts to dismantle systemic barriers. By coming together, hearing loss individuals can draw strength from one another to live life fully and more successfully. Hearing Stories was created to amplify the voices of hearing loss individuals, to increase public awareness about hearing loss and eradicate the stigma associated with it, and to help promote understanding and acceptance within society as a whole.
