We will be presenting a series of mini webinars including a discussion with two Deaf people who are s*x workers about their job and how to give and obtain consent. Then we will have a conversation about s*xual expression online. In the third presentation, we will share information with parents about how to talk with your kids about consent and body autonomy. Last, we will discuss about narcissism in s*xual assault. ALSO— be sure to check out the flyer for our second event, which will be on May 20 at 4:00pm Pacific. [flyer descriptions in comments]

Did you know that s*xual assault can happen in many ways, and that many survivors do not report? Join us for a conversation on how to support survivors of s*xual assault and what radical compassion for survivors can look like.

For the first time in history, three Deaf DV/SV programs in California are teaming up to deliver a rich, powerful and meaningful dialogue on what s*xual assault is, how to support survivors, and what you can do if you think you might have experienced unwanted s*xual contact.

Today we celebrate Civil Rights activist and labor leader César Chávez. Together with Dolores Huerta, they founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers of America.

César Chávez left the field at a very early age to seek farm workers rights and learn how to build a union.

Deaf folks who are in a relationship with more than one intimate partner often face unique challenges when one or more of their partners causes harm. Come join Brian Berlinski and Bethany Gehman for a conversation on the overlapping issues faced by Deaf domestic violence survivors who live by a non-monogamous (or polyamorous) relationship model. Joining them is Diego Guerra, a guest speaker who will honor us with their personal journey and their experiences with unhealthy and healthy non-monogamous relationships.

Our Story

At DeafHope we rely on the empowerment model. We believe that Deaf survivors are not responsible for violence, and they have a right to live in a healthy environment. We believe that Deaf survivors have the ability and right to make their own choices toward living independently and safely. As advocates, we provide support and information, working with their strengths, and only the survivor can make the best choices for themselves and for their family.
