This community is for the hearing and deaf community of Portland, OR but all are welcome to join. It will focus on issues with the deaf and hard-of-hearing world as well as techniques for learning American Sign Language (ASL). If you have any questions, please ask and I will do my best to find the right answer or resource to find it. Also, please post events happening in or around Portland!
About me: My name is Elaine and I'm a 22 year old communication major at PSU. I'm studying ASL at PCC as my foreign language but I've been interested in learning it for years. I still consider myself a beginner but I hope to become fluent. I feel the only way to truly learn sign language is to practice it in the "real world." That's why I wanted to start the ASL PDX community, to help connect people and bring a better understanding of technique and communication through sign language.
