A group of 28 writers touched by Usher syndrome tell their stories to end the isolation and to support research for a cure.
Walk in My Shoes is the result of two years of collaborative effort and is finally complete! This book is a unique collection of 27 powerful stories by individuals who are experiencing or witnessing the challenges of losing not one, but two senses: hearing and sight. The writers of Walk in My Shoes offer a glimpse into living with Usher syndrome, a progressive disease leading to blindness and deafness. Walk in My Shoes speaks to the more than 400,000 people worldwide dealing with Usher syndrome, to their families, to the professionals working with them, and to the rest of the world.
Enjoy an evening of hanging out with old friends and making new ones. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind, and their families are welcome!

Crisis Text Line partners with Gallaudet University to provide a free texting hotline for the Deaf community
Crisis Text Line, a free, 24/7 text-messaging support line for people in crisis, announces the launch of a partnership with Gallaudet University and the Deaf community. Starting today, Deaf people will be able to text the word DEAF to 741741 and be connected with a Crisis Counselor.
"The efforts by Crisis Text Line to ensure that their services are accessible to and appropriate for the deaf community is commendable," said Gallaudet University President Roberta J. Cordano. "Historically, deaf people in need of mental health and emergency/crisis services have had to deal with the additional stress and frustration of finding accessible services. Technology has helped in this manner, but it is also important that mental health and emergency/crisis services staff members are properly trained in working with deaf and hard of hearing clients. I am pleased that Gallaudet staff and students are involved in this critical work."
