Deaf-led organizations play a vital role in disaster and humanitarian contexts, but are often overlooked in disaster research, training, management, and reporting. This webinar spotlights Deaf-led organizations in Japan, Trinidad & Tobago, and Viet Nam to raise awareness about disaster impacts in those countries and the strategies used to advance disaster action. These actions begin with Deaf communities and also provide information and resources that benefit the wider society.
The webinar will be hosted in American Sign Language, Japanese Sign Language, Ho Chi Minh Sign Language, with International Sign interpretation and English CART live captioning. For accommodation requests and information, please contact email@example.com by September 10th, 2021.
