OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE.

THE PURPOSE 

Before Deaf Talent became a hashtag movement, our team, who are change makers, have joined force and is calling for inclusion and representation of POC & Black Deaf Talent cast in roles in mainstream film & television. 

  • to elevate the awareness of deaf talents who are Black and BIPOC, including those with other intersectional identities and ethnicities (i.e. LGBT+),

  • to increase the numbers of deaf talents who are Black and BIPOC, including those with other intersectional identities and ethnicities, i.e. (LGBT+) in front of and behind the camera,

  • to eradicate discriminatory biases that lead to exclusion of who are Black and BIPOC, including those with other intersectional identities and ethnicities, (i.e. LGBT+),

  • to promote opportunities and equal employment of deaf talents who are Black and BIPOC, including those with other intersectional identities and ethnicities,  (LGBT+) in film and television.

  • to address misrepresentation of our work to achieve aforementioned goals (or objectives/mission), and

  • to promote public awareness of the need for social and cultural representations and accessibility in entertainment and media.

WHEN DIVERSITY & INCLUSION MATTER

"If you walk into a room, and there is no one that's not like you there, whether it's a woman or a person of color, anyone that's different from you, you should be able to say this is a problem. We need allies in that room to say that video, this room, this company, these ideas, this film, this whatever, this is not right - this is not good enough." - Ava DuVernay
