Due to COVID-19 all university events have been postponed. The President’s Diversity Awards event will be moved to Fall 2020.
CDAD wishes to share this message from the National Deaf Center. It is a powerful statement on intersectionality and how we can support one another. It comes with links to YouTube videos of individuals telling their stories. The videos are all in American Sign Language but also contain captions. There is a link to a text based video description in the description box of each video. In solidarity.
