At the beginning of 2010,
A Deaf boy accidentally saw a hearing man holding a sign language textbook to learn on bus,
he got touched, leaving his contact information for that hearing man,
After discussing with his classmate, he decided to teach the public sign language for free
by setting up a study group on Douban.
In this manner,
"Learn Chinese-Shanghai Sign Language Together" group was estblished
with the deaf as teachers and hearing signers as assistants.

Here are two reasons to be concerned with the interests of minority. One is to improve their own circumstances as the are always being prejudiced against and are treated high-handedly. Their basic human rights cannot be guaranteed. Another reason is for the interests of the majority and harmony of the society. A society can never be harmonious if it is not tolerant or respectful of the minority.
