Helping Educate to Advance the Rights for the Deaf (HEARD) would like to formally invite you to our New Orleans Deaf Access to Justice & Deaf In Prison Conference on May 30, 2015.
This will be an opportunity to communities about what is occurring around the country related to the topics of “Deaf Access to Justice” and “Deaf in Prison.” Three of our nation’s chief advocate attorneys will share their experiences working with law enforcement, courts, correctional systems, and working on wrongful convictions. We will also have a panel of returned Deaf citizens who will share their journeys through the justice system. Susan Griffin, attorney for Louisiana’s Department of Corrections, will share Louisiana’s strides in improving access for incarcerated Deaf persons. Finally, the day will end with a community-led discussion on how to get involved with efforts to improve Deaf Access to Justice.
This conference is free and open to the public and we encourage you to invite everyone you know to be a part of this historic conference. The flyer for the event is attached to this email. For more information, visit our Facebook event page here.

Elmwood Interpreter Mingle

Harahan, LA 70123-2346
1st Saturday of every month
TIME: 7pm – 9pm
(hosted by LRID)
Dates: June 10 – July 8, 2015
CEUs: 1.0 (RID approved Professional Studies)
Limited to 30 participants
Sign Language interpreters make crucial decisions all the time. We are in the business of facilitating the most personal and private communications. Using the RID/NAD Code of Professional conduct, as a guide, we navigate through some of the most difficult judgment calls. “The Code: an analytical approach” is a five week course involving video lectures and activities you do in your own home or work space. We are offering 1.0 CEUs to each person that completes the five-week course. At the end of the course, participants will have a clearer understanding of Value Systems and what role they play in making value judgments in the context of the Code of Professional Conduct. It is hoped each participant will be able to ascertain which interpreting assignments or situations can be embraced and those that should be avoided.
Here is how it works. Beginning Wednesday, June 10th the instructor, David Hylan, MS, CI/CT will post a weekly video lecture for you to watch. At the end of the lecture you will be given an activity to complete. You will email your activity to David so he can provide you feedback, if appropriate. You will also be given a topic to discuss on the virtual classroom message board. You are expected to make at least two posts on the message board for each topic. At the end of the five weeks you will have completed five lectures, five activities, and at least five topic discussions – one each week.
The last day to register is June 7, 2015. This class will be limited to the first 30 people that register.
REFUND POLICY: No refunds are available.
