Community Consultation services
What do we do as Transformative Community Consultants?
In this consulting space, Cascadia Deaf Nation's Stewarding Team is comprised of resilient stewarding team members who are Deaf Black Indigenous People of Color* (DBIPOC*) who will work WITH you to transform how you view the meaning of accessibility through our cultural-linguistic intersectional lens on social justice and equity spaces whether it is in the business communities or in the academic/educational spaces or in the organized community groups or any other spaces. We do fair trade agreements when we provide consulting wisdom with you.
Our consulting service fees are flexible based on the status of:
- Nonprofit Organizations

What we bring to your spaces:

- Guidance on captioning & transcription access on social media outlets, videos on websites, etc.
- Build healthy collaboration relationships with Deaf communities of color (including people of color who are hard of hearing, DeafBlind,etc.). **Some of us may not be qualified to represent people of color who are DeafBlind or Deaf Disabled, however, we will contract with Deaf intersectional people of color who identify as DeafBlind or DeafDisabled to work with us when providing consulting services**
- Deepen the understanding of how to work with interpreters who are either people of color or solidarity comrades in an open process format within social justice & equity or transformative justice frameworks.
