Our world has been turned upside down; our lives are likely not going to return to normal for a long while. As people are urged to remain home and practice social distancing to #FlattenTheCurve, sign language interpreters continue to answer the call for access. They put the health and well-being of themselves and their families at risk to show up and ensure that deaf people receive access. As we applaud and thank those who continue to show up everyday- in hospitals and medical clinics, grocery stores, pharmacies, let us also remember those who work to provide access in a critical time.
Access is a loving act. And staying home if you feel sick is also an act of love. We thank all of those who can show up to provide access for doing so; and all of those who stay home when ill.
We hope all of you remain healthy and safe in this difficult time. Wishing you good health and fortune.
