Hosts it's first Engage for Change | local Event
On April 18, NDC hosted its first Engage for Change | local event in Austin, TX. Modeled after a successful series of community conversations hosted by Vanderbilt University across the states of Tennessee and Michigan, these events are designed to bring diverse community members together to start much-needed conversations about how communities can increase successful postsecondary outcomes for all deaf individuals.
A photo gallery of the event can be found here. We look forward to upcoming events in the following cities: St. Louis, MO; St. Paul, MN; Fremont, CA; Seattle, WA, Milwaukee, WI and Washington, DC.
