Our trip started at Reuben’s Brews, where we engaged in many wonderful conversations with Seattle locals.
We are honored and grateful for the opportunity to meet with Starbucks, Boeing, Amazon, and Microsoft, to talk about leveraging the economic strength of millions of Deaf people.
We also met with Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services (ADWAS) to witness the collaborative success of CSD Unites resulting in a 24-hour hotline providing support for domestic violence and sexual assault issues.
The trip concluded with Deafhood Foundation’s second annual banquet.
Drago Renteria gave a powerful presentation on intersectionality and the Deaf community, and Ella Mae Lentz eloquently performed a stirring ASL poem, “Hope of the Aspens.”
