Signing Circle

Join us for Signing Circle, a new monthly event for practicing American Sign Language receptive skills, increasing understanding of deaf culture and connecting with others interested in American Sign Language. Deaf speakers will share their life stories in American Sign Language and invite discussion.

Discussion will be in American Sign Language. English interpretation will be provided for non-signing participants.

Signing Circle is free and open to the public.
