We All Smile In The Same Language
Each year, the last full week of September is Deaf Awareness Week; a time to recognize and celebrate the culture, history, language and community unique to Deaf people worldwide.
During this week many organizations for Deaf and hard-of-hearing people will organize marches, debates, campaigns, meetings and celebrations to promote the rights of Deaf people, dispel misconceptions of being Deaf, and bring to light the challenges Deaf people face during everyday life.
This year, Perspectives Corporation will celebrate Deaf awareness by joining the Rhode Island Parent Information Network (RIPIN) and the RI Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) for the second annual Family Fun Day at the Park!
To commemorate the event, Graphic Perspective has designed these fun and attractive t-shirts for volunteers and participants.
Perspectives Corporation is the largest human services agency in the State of Rhode Island, providing a multitude of services for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
Graphic Perspective is a subsidiary of Perspectives, employing people with disabilities to create high-quality printed and embroidered apparel for local businesses and events.
Family Day At The Park will be held on Saturday, September 21st from 12:00-3:00pm at Goddard Memorial State Park in East Greenwich, RI. Bring your family for food, art & crafts, face painting, volleyball, ASL storytelling, and more fun outdoor activities! ASL Interpreters will be provided.
