  • Hi, I’m taking this class as a high school class I live in a small town where we don’t have these events near me unless I drive 2 or 3 hours to one of the bigger cities. Due to this I came up with an idea on how I can substitute the event and was wondering if this would work. I have a few other signers in my school and was curious if signing with them to replace the needed event assignment would work?

  • Hi, I’m actually looking for any deaf events in the Inland Empire area of Southern California. I do know they have an event every Wednesday evening from 6pm – 9pm in Rancho Cucamonga, however, I have classes from 4pm – 8pm on that evening. I would appreciate if you can direct me to another event that doesn’t take place on Monday or Wednesday evenings. Thank you.

    • Hi! Can you tell me where the Wednesday evening event is in Rancho? I’m looking for things in the Inland Empire too. I’m in Eastvale. 🙂

  • Does anyone know when the events are updated? All of the ones listed have passed (2018), where can we see what events are coming up for 2019?

    • It just has to do with when someone posts about an event they know about, maybe in their area. There is really no set updates.
      Where are you from?

    • Thank you for your comment. StartASL is working on updating our events more often. Let me know what areas you are looking for and I can spend some extra attention on that area.

      • I am continually looking for events in the northern Colorado area:-) I have yet to find one…
