Social Justice 4 our Communities
Hi My name is Stephanie Johnson. In the community, I am known as Butta (butter sign). Social justice trainings, presentations, sharing and exchanges are not always accessible to other Deaf organizations, Deaf Children programs and etc. I am asking you to help Take a Stand! in supporting our causes. We should not punish an organization, club or a cause because they are not able to pay for presenters or to cover flight/lodging? (Image: MONEY in text with red circle with a slash across the word money).
We will be doing 3 projects. Two will be for the children: Deaf campers and Deaf children of color to foster intersectionality and ASL. Not only that, we will be presenting at a conference about anti oppression issues in our Deaf community such as heterosexism, Racism, audism and many more. Help is needed and we need support in going these places.
Help is needed to cover:
· Multicultural books for the Deaf, Deaf Blind and hard of hearing children to connect their culture in ASL. Children's materials will be customized to fit within their cultural experience.
· Hands on activities for our SSAFE (Safe Space Affirmed for Everyone) workshops in June and July. We need balls, books, papers, printing, copies, and etc.
· And activities for the YLC campers, which needed to be created and brought to YLC for them to keep.
We need support with these things.
Our Social Justice Materials are adapted to fit many identities within the Deaf/Signing community.
I hope to get your support. Thank you!
