We recognize that BIPOC Deaf grassroots and Deaf interpreters are telling us they’re tired. Tired of facing tough issues in the interpreting profession. Tired of discussing racial issues. Tired of Power, Privilege, and Oppression situations, tired of the same cycles over and over . . .
Diversity fatigue is REAL.
What are you waiting for? Come join us.
The goal of POWER is to support the grassroots movement for racial change; the goal of IMPACT is to cultivate readiness for action within the profession. Participants in the Network Power Gathering and Impact Track will be collaborating on a new model for interpreting called BEACON: Belonging, Empathy, Acceptance, Compassion, Opportunity, and Negotiation. BEACON balances linguistic with social aspects of interpreting. If you are BIPOC Deaf or BIPOC hearing ally/accomplice and want to receive an official invitation to the BIPOC Deaf POWER Gathering, click this link (includes ASL ).
