ALDA-Boulder is hosting the creation of a local Speaker’s Bureau to educate & inform the public about issues related
to hearing loss & deafness. Our goals are to increase the visibility of people who are deaf & have hearing loss in our communities and to connect deafened people as role models and educators.
In this 3-year project, we will create a Boulder County-based
Speaker’s Bureau that can send a single speaker or a panel, depending on the focus & purpose of the organization & the nature of the event. We will offer speakers on very specific topics, or for more general information. We aim to highlight
the diversity of experiences that fall under the wider label of “deaf & hard of hearing.”
We will coordinate activities with other Colorado deaf & hearing loss nonprofit organizations, national deaf & hard of hearing groups, and state & local government agencies to create a resource serving Boulder County and beyond.
To volunteer on this advocacy project, or to request a
Speaker Profile form to join our listings, see our CONTACT page.
This advocacy & education project aims to increase public awareness of three voice-to-text services that benefit people who are losing their hearing:
We offer free workshops in Boulder
County to show how to use these
services and participate more in
community events. We provide a
Consumer Advocacy Packet on
access rights and today's solutions,
including resource lists, sample forms,
and tips for requesting captioning
services. We'll discuss movie, live
theater, and video caption options,
caption quality, and how to show
others what works best for our needs.
Our goal is a more inclusive, deaf-friendly community!
