Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center (HSDC) commits to implementing anti-racist and anti-audist practices based on recommendations from the HSDC Equity Team. We understand the work for Racial & Social Justice is never done and there are always opportunities to do more. It is our responsibility to do all we can to support BIPOC and people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, hard of hearing, and have speech diversity.
We will commence with these commitments immediately and begin with 11 intentional actions, with the help of outside experts from the BIPOC and Deaf communities.
