Annual Deaf Awareness Night – Friday, September 19

The Houston Astros and the University of Houston’s American Sign Language Interpreting (ASLI) Program want to make you aware of an upcoming community event that has never happened before in the city of Houston.

For the first time ever, Minute Maid Park and the Houston Astros are inviting the community to its first Annual Deaf Awareness Night!

Other MLB teams host events like this – see links:

Every year, Deaf Awareness Week (also known as the International Week of the Deaf – http://nad.org/iwd)  is celebrated around the country. As an early kick-off for Deaf Awareness Week, the UH ASL & Interpreting Club will be presenting Deaf Awareness Night at Minute Maid park tonight Friday, Sept 19th.

The Astros are even hosting a special tour in honor of Deaf Community Awareness before the game.  UH students enrolled in our program are donating their time to provide sign language interpreting services for all in the community who attend the tour.  The goal is to bring awareness to the Houston community about the needs of the Deaf and hard-of-hearing population and to get as many people as possible to support this initiative.

For any questions, contact Sharon Hill at University of Houston – shill@uh.eduor (281) 639-2232.
