Event Description
D.C. prides itself on being a city of inclusion and equality, and businesses here are constantly adapting to meet employees’ and customers’ needs. We'll talk with some that are adapting “deaf space” design practices, including Starbuck’s first U.S. signing store and Streetcar 82 Brewing Co., the District’s first deaf-owned brewery. Enjoy beverages and light bites from Stellina Pizzeria as you learn simple ways spaces can be more accommodating, the difficulties of starting a deaf-run business, and some of the city’s plans to aid in the growing “deaf space” revolution. ***An ASL interpreter will be provided at this event.
