Transcript:

Michelle:
Hey everyone! The Douglas Tilden 5K walk/run and 10K run is coming up soon. Are you ready? Have you already paid for your registration?
Daniel:
The event will take place in our beautiful city of San Francisco. We will begin our walk/run at 8 o'clock in the morning. Everyone should finish by approximately 9:30. We will all head over to the entertainment area. Entertainment will include performances and storytelling.
I bet you are wondering who will provide the entertainment?
Michelle:
It will be led by Melvin Patterson, who will captivate us all.
Daniel:
I am really excited to share that Marilyn Jean Smith will fly in from Seattle Washington. She is going to share an important message with all of us. I am really looking forward to have her be with us. She is an amazing speaker. It will be so exciting.
Michelle:
You will see behind me the letter "D" from Douglas' name. Ben Lewis has done a lot of research and knows a lot about Douglas Tilden. He will be flying in from Los Angeles to share his knowledge about his life.
Daniel:
You will really enjoy the beautiful ASL poetry of Cara Barnett. Cara Is from the Bay Area. She will entertain us with some new works of her ASL poetry created specifically for our event.
Michelle:
Children will perform also from the California School for the Deaf.
Daniel:
We are fortunate to also have 2 NAD region IV representatives. Julie Rems Smario and David O. Reynolds. They will both share a few words.

A (PDF) flyer of the event is also available for download.

Walk for ASL - Still Going!

The Walk for ASL is a 30-day trek along the Californian coast, from San Francisco to Santa Monica, which began on May 1st and will end on May 30th. Fifteen Deaf individuals have signed up to walk up to 20 miles a day to bring national attention to the transformative power of American Sign Language (and international sign languages). During the walk, they will discuss why ASL is important for Deaf people and our humanity. Check our their daily walks at walkforasl.com.

Ryan has invited everyone to join them at Pismo Beach on May 21 and 22. See the vlog at walkforasl.com.

Action Items!

We want to bring a few issues to your attention. If you live in the states that are mentioned in the news items below, please TAKE ACTION! Don't sit by and assume someone else will do it. We must be constantly vigilant and be prepared to MOVE when our linguistic and cultural rights are threatened.

Arizona

The Alliance for Deaf Bilingual Children calls on all national and worldwide allies to lend moral and practical support to the Arizona Deaf community in its current efforts to re-take democratic, community control and oversight of the two schools for the Deaf that are administered by the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (ASDB). The DBC applauds the courage of the protesters, including the students, that has been shown to the world in Arizona, in their unwavering stance for social justice and equity.

A letter from a parent of an ASDB student outlines the issues; you can view it at www.asdbreports.com.
