Mental Health Interpreters possess a unique skill set which enables them to ethically and responsibly facilitate communication between deaf patients and hearing service providers. Unless a qualified Mental Health Interpreter is utilized, deaf individuals are absolutely not receiving the same level of care as hearing people.

"We are viewed as objects of inspiration while being left out of the overall diversity conversation."
An incredible piece by David Peter addressing the audism that prevails in tech culture and everyday life.
I have never met another person who is deaf at a hearing tech conference. I regularly see uncaptioned video tutorials for open source libraries and transcript-less tech podcasts. I stopped going to tech meetups. Without any representation in tech, I grew up a token.

"In our current shifting social climate, organizations of all sizes are looking for ways to create workplace diversity. Diversity initiatives might be good intentioned, but many times they are poorly implemented, leaving these minority employees to sink or swim. "

"As I watch my deaf nieces become beautiful talented young women, I know we must fight for all children to grow up in a world of possibility. The #DeafTalent campaign is about more than just deaf actors in Hollywood, it is about creating opportunities in work and in life."
With so many talented deaf/HoH performer working to catch their big break in Hollywood, it is inexcusable that hearing actors and actresses continue being cast for these roles. Deaf parts belong to deaf performers....

Hearing artists are often fascinated by ASL because it is a beautiful visual language. It is important to be respectful when incorporating elements of another culture into your performance.
There is a fine line between showcasing the beauty of ASL, and utilizing sign language as a gimmick. Hearing artists often toe this line without even considering the opportunities that exist for better collaboration....

"At least 83% of deaf/ hard of hearing children in the United States are enrolled in public schools." With more deaf students than ever in the mainstream, educators, staff, and parents should understand the functions of ASL Interpreters in the classroom.
