Lidia Best – Poland

“When I was growing up in Poland, the only way to pick your political side was really by talking to friends and family. Newspapers were state-controlled. TV debates were and still are not accessible to deaf and hard-of-hearing people due to a lack of live subtitling of live debates. You can of course read newspapers but from my own experience and perspective, it is live debates which bring more understanding of the candidate views, persona, and how they present themselves.”
