GDM is pleased to announce that Islamic Relief USA has given us grant to provide free ASL classes for everyone and ASL interpreters for Deaf Muslims who are interested in going to Islamic conferences. ASL classes will be held once a week in our Falls Church headquarters as well as at our St. Paul Chapter in Minnesota. These classes are targeted to hearing parents of Deaf children, relatives, and friends who want to learn ASL to have healthy communication with Deaf people. GDM is excited about being able to access Islamic conferences throughout this year with ASL interpreters. Please contact GDM for more information about conferences you would like to attend with ASL interpreters. We are very grateful for Islamic Relief USA for their recognition and support for our mission.
