SDCRId Mission statement

San Diego County RID is a non-profit organization committed to professional development, networking and fundraising efforts for professional interpreters, students of interpreting, and supporters of the interpreting community. 

Equity and Multiculturalism Statement:


San Diego County Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (SDCRID) understands the necessity of multicultural awareness, sensitivity and competency. Therefore, as an organization, we are committed to equity and multiculturalism within the organization while uplifting the local Black, Indigenous, People of Color community of sign language interpreters and students of the profession, as well as Deaf, DeafBlind, Deaf Disabled, Hard of Hearing, and Late-Deafened (DDBDDHHLD) persons. We must draw from the widest variety of society with regards to equity and multiculturalism in order to provide support, equitable treatment, and respect among and within our community. 

SDCRID defines equity and multiculturalism as differences which are appreciated, sought after, and shaped in the form of the following intersectional categories within both the profession of sign language interpreting and the SDCRID organization:


  • Disability status

  • Age

  • Deaf, DeafBlind, Deaf Disabled, Hard of Hearing, Late-Deafened

  • Immigration status

  • Sign language interpreting experience

  • Certification status and level

  • Language and/or communication background


  • Ethnic identity 

  • Race

  • Gender/non-binary identity or expression

  • Religious affiliation 

  • Sexual orientation 

  • Socioeconomic status

  • Geographic region


To that end, we strive for equity and multiculturalism in every area of SDCRID. We are firmly aware that there are differences that exist among people who represent a 21st century population and provide for innumerable resources within the sign language interpreting community. Our commitment to equity and multiculturalism reflects and stems from our understanding of present and future needs of both our organization and local practitioners.
