Event Details

Deaf, deafblind, and hard of hearing people are all around but often go unnoticed. Many still experience discrimination and exclusion. You can make a difference. In this talk, you'll hear from a professional sign language interpreter and get tips to create a more welcoming environment at your workplace, business, or community events. Practice essential words and phrases in sign language. Finally, learn about classes, volunteer opportunities, and jobs related to sign language.


Registration is required.  Please register in person, by phone, or online.
