History of DWIAA
It surprises many that Deaf people do not, in fact, consider themselves a community defined by a handicap; rather, they consider themselves a cultural minority. One of the hallmarks of any culture is a unique language, and Deaf culture is no exception. Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing people communicate in American Sign Language (ASL). When members of these groups are victimized by domestic or sexual violence, they do not have access to the support and services they need because service providers often know little about Deaf culture and are unable to communicate via ASL.
After attending this national training, these four women returned to Iowa, rolled up their sleeves, and began.
