Did you know that nearly 5 out of every 100 people in Muskegon County is either hard of hearing or deaf? Do you know the difference between “deaf”, “Deaf” and “hard of hearing”?  Did you know that there are traditions and unique cultural values within the deaf and hard of hearing community?

 

This is a culture that is diverse, complex, and sometimes very different from “hearing” culture.  Join us and let’s learn together.

 

This is a lunch and learn event.  Please bring a sack lunch.
