Hello! We have a new team member! Her name is Amy Jones. She just joined our team. What is her role? She’ll handle our public relations! Also, she will work with us on writing, editing, and the like so that we can continue to connect with the public! Welcome to the team!

 

Several people have contacted us about their concerns that funeral homes are not accessible for deaf communities and that’s a serious problem! What will we do? We’ve written letters of advocacy that we plan to send to local and in state funeral homes explaining that they are responsible and required to follow ADA to make sure that they provide access for the deaf individuals who need access. Why is this so important? You’ll be going through such an emotional and vulnerable time in your lives and you have to deal with communication barriers. 

 

We don’t want that for you. We want to eliminate and reduce that. So, that’s what we have done lately!

In March, we hosted a name sign contest! Thank you who voted and participated! Now, we have an official name sign!

 

[The new name sign: using two hands each in an “A shape” on top of each other, the hand moves like the sign “change” or “translate” and both hands open up into a spread out “five hand shape”]

 

From now on, please use the sign for Adjacent Space! We’ve noticed that the name sign fits our communities, which aligns to our organization!
