What should the Deaf Culture do about

AG Bell's 2008 convention that will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 27-30, 2008?

Is it true that this is the largest gathering of families with deaf and hard of hearing children in the world?

Should we let AG Bell know that we disagree with their concept of deafness? Will there be any Deaf people who lives in the area who might show up to "protest"?

Added: 11:00 AM: I like this commentary about the AG Bell's situation here: My Response to Karen Youdelman’s and Alexander T. Graham’s Pepsico Letter and I made a comment in this blog with full support.
