    "Interpreting for Accessibility: Entering the Space of Latinx Deaf People"

    Presented by Socorro Garcia


    Workshop Description:


    The workshop provides sign language interpreters with the tools for
    considering and understanding Latinx Deaf’s needs, while also providing accessibility in a healing space. Latinx Deaf people typically must deal with challenges, injustices, and oppressions based on not only by their being deaf, but also by other factors such as those related to their gender or their ethnicity. Participants also will learn how to recognize such factors, and how to avoid reinforcing this oppression. This in turn helps them provide Latinx Deaf with accessibility to content and a space in which they feel accepted and free of any
    prejudice.


    Educational Objectives:


    1. Participants will become aware of intersectional oppressions and how these oppressions affect Latinx Deaf on a daily basis.


    2. Participants will report an understanding of the phonocentric perspective and how they can transition their perspectives to Latinx Deaf’s vision or perspective via cross-communication and cultural meditation.


    3. Participants will become aware of healing spaces and how to preserve such spaces while being in solidarity with Latinx Deaf consumers.
