WIDHH is doing an survey

The Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WIDHH) is beginning the process of finding new ways to communicate what we care about to the broader public. We are collecting as much input from you – our passionate and integral community – to help shape the direction our refined identity takes.

Please take a few minutes to answer a few questions in our survey, https://goo.gl/forms/C2M54Ou8oIPBMitk2.  The survey includes a link for an ASL translation.
