Part 1 of 3 of Deaf Bilingual Coalition movement in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The purpose of this movement is to prevent Alexander Graham Bell Association from spreading injustice, elimination of the use of Sign Language, and oppression by the audists. The DBC promotes the basic human right of all Deaf babies and children to have access to language and cognitive development through American Sign Language.

ASL Students Network in British Columbia

Hello everyone,

As you know, I am learning American Sign Language. Last year, the ASL Student Network began to encourage hearing students in their studies. Even if you are out of town, you may know people who are interested in ASL in the lower mainland or people in your own community. We work online so you don’t have to physically be here to join the network. This is the pebble in the pond. Please forward it to as many people as you can. There is no guarantee that this will bring you good luck or wealth but hopefully more people will learn to communicate with the Deaf. Although the people who send this to may not have an interest in ASL, they may know someone who does. Check this out.

Thanks for helping spread the word,
