List Descriptions and Facebook Groups – If you are interested in changing subscriber lists, notify our hospitality committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Subscribers may join one general purpose list, as well as the Meniere’s and Cochlear Implant lists, and our Facebook groups.
Forum is our international list, and is culturally diverse. The list averages about twenty-five e-mails per day. Though members have bonded through their hearing loss experiences, intense discussion may occasionally develop over global issues and politics.
THE VISTAS LIST WILL ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEED FOR CAPITAL LETTERS IF YOU HAVE USHERS SYNDROME OR LOW VISION. THOUGH MOST VISTANS DO NOT HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR VISION, THIS LIST DEMONSTRATES A COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION RARELY FOUND IN OTHER ONLINE COMMUNITIES. EXPECT TO RECEIVE ABOUT TWO EMAILS PER DAY.
World members strike a nice balance between discussion about hearing loss and a variety of other topics unrelated to hearing loss. Many of World’s subscribing members have had hearing loss from a young age. World participants offer a wealth of experience and insight about hearing loss challenges. On average, they post about six messages per day.
Connect has more subscribers under age forty than our other lists, though there is no age limit. They also tend to focus more on hearing loss topics than other general lists. This is a warm and supportive list that avoids controversy. Expect eight emails per day.
Cochlear Implant (CI)
Advocacy is the act or process of supporting a cause. SWC Advocacy list is a specific focus list for those interested and active in self-advocacy, requesting accommodation that benefits you personally, or broader endeavors that benefit and apply to the entire hearing loss and deaf communities.
