What's Up Deaf Equity?

Deaf Equity has been working with United Health. We have provided two workshop series with a Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing panel of community members. We will be providing another workshop series talking about technology! It has been a phenomenal journey working with United Health, Matthew and Ayana. Thanks to our Interpreters, Dee and Tarra.


Deaf Equity got a 2030 Grant to focus on gathering input for the Census . Many of you participated in the 2020. What was your experience like? Was it your first time? What were were your challenges?

SHARING OUR FRIENDS NEWS:

A message from Keenan Gao with ASL Climb


Minneapolis Bouldering Project is offering rock climbing 1-day summer camps with ASL interpreters for DHH youth aged 5 to 12. The sessions are offered for ages 5 to 12. Rock climbing is a physically rewarding way for youth to learn problem-solving skills and perseverance. This camp is a great opportunity for youth to socialize with other DHH children in a small group environment with an instructor-student ratio of 1:6.

There will be 3 separate sessions on Fridays from 9am-2pm. Each 1-day session costs $110.


Attached is a flyer for a DHH rock climbing summer camp that links to more information. Please distribute this to interested groups!



We want to thank our monthly Donor: Laura Perez. Your monthly donations make a difference in our organization! You rock!
