Stephanie Schaffer was our Interpreter for Sen Bob Casey

Stephanie Schaffer was our interpreter for Sen Bob Casey once again!

Stephanie said, “His speech was broadcasted live through both Senator Casey’s page and the U.S. Democrats Facebook pages. Last I checked there was a combined total of 88,000 views on Facebook and there was a handful of comments regarding the interpreter. Mainly ‘thank you for providing an interpreter’ and my personal favorite ‘Yes! An interpreter that’s actually signing what they’re saying and not monster and pizza!’”
