DBC campaigns for the cultural and linguistic rights of all Deaf babies and children to learn American Sign Language and English through three areas: education, grassroots organizing, and direct action. DCARA provides Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, Late-Deafened, and Deaf-Blind communities with the resources, access and advocacy services they need to make independent decisions in a variety of situations. CAD preserves, protects and promotes the civil, human, and linguistic rights of Deaf people in California. DHF is dedicated to achieving economic and social justice for all Deaf people. SFCD promotes social and general betterment of its Deaf members and hosts recreational activities. All five organizations involved will continue to promote their organization’s mission throughout the year to educate and enrich the lives of all those in the Deaf community and future generations to come with the funds earned from this event. As new laws are being enacted at all levels of governments, new challenges are being faced in areas such as social, education, economic and cultural heritage. It has become more important to protect the progress that has been made in these areas, for future generations. There are approximately 300,000 Deaf and Hard of Hearing people of all ages living in the Bay Area.
