Dear TNE

by • August 27th, 2015

Emergency Interpreting for Nemo in Massachusetts

by • February 14th, 2013

This video explains why Fox 25/Boston's Doug VB Goudie promoted violence against Deaf people with his mockery of the sign language interpreter provided during MA Governor Deval Patrick's Press Conference. VB's dismissive attitude toward communication access for the Deaf could be considered hate speech. The effects of VB's negative words could lead to Deaf people not being provided appropriate public warning and therefore finding themselves at risk of injury or death.

Appealing to a greater vision for INTERPRETING

by • January 6th, 2013

Response to Stephanie Clark’s vlogs about linguistic equality (between American Sign Language and English) and training for Certified Deaf Interpreters. Training and dialogue in ASL are stepping stones to bigger challenges: such as creating a market for CDIs to get work and choosing to trust each other as allies even when we sometimes let each other down. If we focus on the bigger goal, more of the necessary steps will fall into place naturally.
