    Are there any deaf events in Alabama? I volunteer at my church foodbank and there are several deaf people that come to get help. It is sad because usually they sit alone because they have no way of communicating with others. I plan to try to connect with them this month. Anyone in Alabama wanna join me?

          Hi Jessica! I am also in NoVA (Woodbridge) and I travel to Haymarket/Gainesville area often for work and to hang out with friends. I took a beginners ASL course at Kendall Demonstration Elementary in DC about 6 years ago so I would consider myself to be a fairly proficient beginner (lol) but i’m looking for people to connect with and certainly practice with. I think it would be great for us to connect! Let me know. : )
