Description: The Deaf, DeafBlind, and interpreting communities are always changing. How can we evolve, but maintain a healthy, connected community? In this workshop, we will discuss how our actions in these communities can have an impact that is different than we intended. We will also consider our accountability to ourselves and to the community. We will discuss how to have healthy discussions and maintain community accountability on social media, as well as how to be supportive of other community members… even if we disagree. Participants will be challenged to become more aware of the intent and impact of their actions..
