Join Us Today

Why Join?

We believe in nothing about us Deaf People without us Deaf People, especially with policy-making, laws, and businesses.

Education & Advocacy

We are alarmed with the growing epidemic of language deprived Deaf children due to the ideology of speaking and listening only promoted by the medical professionals. Deaf children have the right to have full access to American Sign Language at school, home and with their Deaf peers.


We have resources for all deaf Californians with beneficial information for within their communities. Check out our Resources page for more information.
