    Workshop details:

    This workshop encourages participants to take a closer look at the perceived and actual benefits of strategic community allyship. Through Deaf lens, Corey Axelrod – founder and CEO of 2axend – will identify multiple ways sign language interpreters can effectively provide long-term strategic support that will collectively benefit the Deaf and interpreting communities.

    Participants will be able to:

    • Identify  differences between allyship and advocating for an individual person;
    • List strategies to identify how to best support a marginalized group; and
    • List tips to hold other interpreters accountable for their actions.

    • Lunch will be on your own, with a variety of local restaurant options to choose from.
    • Cancellation and refunds will be available until July 13, 2019. After this date refund requests will be considered under board discretion.
