Deaf Unity is hosting the annual Fall Fundraiser event and a workshop on October 10, 2015.  

Fall Fundraiser:

Tickets to this event includes brunch, a keynote speech, silent auction and live auction.  This event will be available in ASL and spoken English.  CART will also be provided.  Tickets are $60 (Teal) and $100 (Purple, and includes a gift)

Keynote Speaker:

Tara Holcomb, from DeafHope in Oakland, CA will speak about "Community Accountability: It Begins With You".  Tara has worked at DeafHope since 2011 and currently serves as Empowerment Director.  She has taken over 100 hours training in domestic and sexual violence to be certified as an advocate in the state of California.  She has been involved in anti-oppression and anti-violence work in Deaf communities for more than 10 years. During her time with DeafHope, she has been exploring community-based responses to domestic and sexual violence.  She lives in the Bay Area with her partner, Chad and their three children Pax, Thoreau and Clementine.

 

Workshop:

Tara will introduce you to the dynamics of community-based responses to domestic and sexual violence -- in other words, community accountability.  We will discuss how our criminal justice, medical, and educational systems have traditionally responded to marginalized survivors of violence, especially those who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind and Deaf Disabled.  We will learn about other possibilities of safety, support and healing for survivors who experience violence.  Together, we will explore how we can create safer and healthier Deaf communities by supporting survivors and holding each other accountable.

Registration is required and is $10 without CEUs or $30 with CEUs.  You can register and pay at the door for this workshop.
