For every Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, Deaf-Blind individual to have communication access where they live, work, and play everyday.
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.
What We Do
Adjacent Space promotes and advocates public spaces and entities to meet appropriate Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, use of open captioning, use of American Sign Language Interpreters, and other visual and tactile tools. Currently these spaces continue to oppress and disenfranchise the rights of our Deaf community to live an equal and successful life. Through visual and tactile proactive approaches our goal is to lessen the reactive nature of post-discrimination tug of war and reshape how culture interacts with our Deaf community members.
