Learning to accompany others

Access to legal education is a right and not a privilege. For some people, access to justice is the difference between injustice and dignified living. Learning about the culture, needs, and legal aspirations of the deaf community has been a formative process for our team. Besieged by discrimination and exclusion, deaf people strive for justice. Our responsibility as advocates is to accompany them in the process of knowing and defending their rights. In the last few months, and thanks to your support, we have been able to produce critical educational resources using sign language and the help of interpreters. Materials on alymony, labor discrimination and access to health have served thousands of individuals. Our videos have been watched more than 1000 times! We hope this translates into more access for this community. You can access the library here. Remember that Puerto Rico's deaf people use a different sign language, which makes funding local interpreters even more urgent.

We also want to share great news. Our team has been certified by ASLES, a deaf people owned sign language organization, as an organization that has passed the introductory sign language course. We are honored, grateful, and humbled by the meaning of this huge step. <3
