Community Conversations: Mobilizing Local Communities to Make Change Happen, Guerra, D; May 31- June 2, 2018

Presentation Summary: There is no simple solution to the challenges and barriers encountered by deaf people. The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes believes that the path to improved outcomes for deaf people includes actively involving communities surrounding deaf youth, including being culturally responsive with intersectional identities. This presentation provides an overview of the NDC community model. This conversation model invites community members into the process of identifying critical needs and potential solutions, thus increasing buy-in and the chance for successful impact on improved postsecondary outcomes. At this workshop, NDC will work in solidarity to affirm, celebrate, and collectively uplift our disabled Latinx community through community building, gathering resources, and education.
