Take the Survey
Every day, Michiganders who are Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing contribute in countless ways to our schools, our workplaces, and our lives. But for decades, Michigan has lacked information about the people who make up these communities and their needs. The Not Without Us initiative aims to change that—particularly through a needs assessment survey.
The survey should take you about 30 minutes to an hour, but you can save your progress and finish at a later time for up to one week.
When you’re done, please share the link to the NotWithoutUsMich.org website with your friends, family, and communities! You can also spread the word about the survey on your social networks with the hashtag #NotWithoutUsMich.
There are two versions of the survey available. One provides each question and response in American Sign Language, or ASL, as well as in English text. The other version is text-only and is designed to work better with screen readers or other translation software. Please choose the version that will work best for you.
If you have any questions or any technical issues with the survey, please email info@NotWithoutUsMich.org.
Request a Referral Code
You can request a referral code by sending an email to info@NotWithoutUsMich.org or requesting one through the following form. When you encourage others who are Deaf, DeafBlind, or Hard of Hearing to take the survey, ask them to put in your referral code at the end of the survey. You can win prizes by encouraging people to take the survey and your efforts can help ensure that all eligible people in Michigan have a chance to express their needs and share their experiences through the survey. If you don’t want to wait for a referral code, tell your friends and family to enter your email address when they are asked to enter a referral code.
