For every Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, Deafblind individual to have communication access where they live, work and play.
Adjacent Space is committed to advance public spaces into a more visual-tactile accessible and equitable place for Deaf, hard-of-hearing and Deafblind communities.
How does Adjacent Space fulfill its mission?
The winning formula of a fully accessible and equitable community involves:

Creating jobs for Deaf Interpreters whose skill is used to create equitable communication and information for the community.
Model the foundation of an accessible and equitable organization by internally using accessible tools, inclusion of diverse perspectives, minority leadership and recognizing where privilege needs to be disbanded.
Creates accessible content for the community.
Actively looks for approaches that create an equitable community through which everyone lives, works and plays.
