If you’re an interpreter or interpreting student, join us for “Allies in Deafhood” on January 24th from 10am-5pm at Deaf Action Center. This workshop will equip you to become a stronger ally for the Deaf community by examining the concepts of deafness, Colonialism, and Audism and their effects on Deaf culture as well as answer the essential question “What does it mean to be an ally?”
