Empowering the Black Deaf Community

As a member of the Deaf community, it is important to know and understand your rights as a citizen in both communities and in the larger world.

Building Strong Connections

Advocacy is not just about individual rights, but also about creating strong connections and support within the community.

Fighting for Equal Opportunities

Discrimination and inequalities are still prevalent in the Deaf community. Join us in the fight for equal opportunities.
