We are a Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) group that provides language, advocacy, and consulting services within the United States and internationally. Our language services use Language Justice as a framework for interpretation, document translation, and video/audio media file transcription in American Sign Language, Spanish, and English for educational, medical, legal, community/social services, conferences and more.
Our advocacy services use Language Justice and Disability Justice frameworks to advance the rights of BIPOC, Deaf, and Disabled persons by providing trainings, workshops, and in-services to make educational, community, and online environments more accessible and inclusive.
Our consulting services are in the areas of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method research at the local, state, national, and international levels in areas of language, Deaf populations, and human rights. We also work with businesses, organizations, educational institutions and social justice movements to apply Language Justice and Disability Justice within their scopes.
To be a BIPOC- and Disabled-led organization that centers and prioritizes the most marginalized of society by promoting Disability and Language Justice as processes for creating a more equitable, just, and inclusive global community.
We believe that everyone deserves to have their existence valued outside of capitalistic structures, but also recognize that Black, Brown, Indigenous and Disabled bodies are often excluded from opportunities that would allow them to meet their physical and material needs.
We believe that Disability Justice and Language Justice are central to the liberation of all our communities.
We are committed to providing a space for BIPOC Deaf and hearing interpreters to develop skills and network to increase the number of BIPOC interpreters in the field prepared to work in a variety of contexts.
