My friend and I are looking to interview a few high school or college aged students to take a quick survey to help us with our freshman year research papers. Please contact us if you can help us out.
I am sorry to share this kind of news. I cannot continue to host for the Deaf Happy hour anymore due to my health. If you know someone who wants to take over, please let me know. Also, i want to thank you all for your support and time we all had together over the last two years which I will cherish.

There is a huge need for more trained interpreters available to interpret in settings impacted by domestic violence and sexual violence. Having training can mean the difference between making a survivor feel empowered or retraumatized. This module provides tools and resources for understanding the specialty knowledge and skills needed to be successful in these settings.
My name is Lyndsey Dusanek and I work with DeafLEAD. I am excited to tell you about two important programs that DeafLEAD provides for the Deaf community. Those two programs are:
Deaf Crisis Line – a 24-hour crisis hotline available for Deaf individuals who have ever been emotionally, physically or sexually abused (past or present) and are struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, or who just need someone to talk to. Trained crisis workers are fluent in sign language and available 24/7/365.
FREE sign language interpreting for Deaf and Hard of Hearing victims of crime, as well as for shelters, law enforcement, and victim service providers working with them.
Any assistance you can provide in getting the information out to Deaf individuals in your state would be greatly appreciated.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
DeafLEAD (formerly The L.E.A.D Institute)

FYI: Webmaster asked if the service covers Missouri or Nationwide, and their response was that they are in the process of expanding nationwide. It is a useful resource to have. Also attached are two letters of interest.
The Google Accessibility Engineering Team is looking for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing to become volunteer testers of new Google products with the purpose of providing accessibility feedback to the engineering teams here at Google. If deemed a fit, the volunteer testers will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on some cool new products we’re working on, interact directly with teams at Google via email, phone and/or video chat, all while helping to make our products more accessible.
For the pilot program, which may last up to one year, we are looking for tech-savvy users who are at least 18 years of age and reside in the U.S. Anyone interested in volunteering for the program should fill out this survey, which is also linked at www.google.com/accessibility/i
Have questions about the program? Feel free to contact google-accessibility-trusted-t
