June 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This training focuses on Deaf, DeafBlind, Deaf Disabled, Hard of Hearing and Late Deafened (D/DB/DD/HH/LD) communities and cultures. Participants will learn best practices and accessibility considerations when engaging with D/DB/DD/HH/LD individuals who “live, work and play” in DC. Participants will take away best practices to improve accessibility within their organization, activities and events.

Deputy Director Karen Quinones and Chief of Staff Kisha Gore will be presenting the Cultural Competency Training as part of MODDHH’s vision to enhance the quality of life for all residents with genuine inclusion that makes communications accessibility an ingrained part of living, working, and playing in DC. Our work centers Universal Design as part of technological advancement and increase community awareness both inside and outside of Deaf, DeafBlind, Deaf Disabled, Hard of Hearing, and Late Deafened communities.​
