But, I Can't Hear You?! - Deaf Culture and Advocacy for DV/SA Agencies
Anjela will share her extensive background working within the Deaf community, specific to how best to support Deaf colleagues and clients who use our services. This will include basic lessons on ASL fingerspelling (including resources to share within home agencies), Deaf culture 101, and specific tools for reaching out to and inviting a more consistent Deaf presence in your agency and community activities.
Anjela is the blissful mama and Owner/CEO of www.anjelabundance.com. To help other mamas remember the “Me before Mama”, Anjela has embarked on the quest to get mothers to SLOW DOWN. From her work as a former Women of Color Program Coordinator with OCADSV to Manager at New Seasons Market, her background in crisis intervention and management, only amplify her leadership skills. And when the words just won’t come, Anjela relies on her heart-language, American Sign Language to help her connect to and convey her own healing truth. Yet above it all, Anjela’s biggest teachers are her own children Billie Kat and Jalen, and their assistant, Anjela’s wife Jane. Anjela invites you to join her online at www.anjelabundance.com. As well Anjela offers dynamic keynote presentations on a variety of subjects, including Mama Overwhelm Relief, Teen Bullying Awareness & Prevention, and Vicarious Trauma Relief for Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Service Providers.
