WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
Social justice discourse saturates conferences – does it feel like the concept of justice is just beyond your reach? As interpreters, it is vital to learn more about the systems we are trying to change in an effort to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion.

PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO

  • explore their own identities and Pamela Hays’ ADDRESSING model to development and how they may improve their skills to work toward allyship behaviors.
  • demonstrate appropriate identification of oppressive behaviors and create two ways to approach each oppressive phase.
  • isolate three unique ways to seek reciprocal consensus of Deaf people.

COST: This workshop is free to attend. Donations in support of HASA (to fund community interpreting projects) are welcome.
