ASL Chat on Zoom – Monday May 25, 2020

Hello all! As we continue to follow the recommended social distancing, it is neither practical or advisable for us to hold our Silent Supper or ASL Coffee Chats in person for the near future.

We have been holding some low key “ASL Chats” using the zoom platform … and for the most part, it has worked well. It’s not perfect, and most would prefer to be in person at Firehouse Subs or Starbucks – but this is what we have to work with at the present time.

We know many people are off of work, and perhaps unable to be with family and friends. To help to facilitate a means for an outlet, we will be opening up an online chat room on zoom – on MONDAY MAY 25, 2020 – beginning at 12 NOON and ending at 10PM. Yep – it will be open for 10 hours. So you may join at anytime, leave as you wish and come back in as often as you like. You MAY find when you login that there is no one else on – it just depends on the time of day. Feel free to share this with others. Below is the meeting ID and password that you will need to get in.

Topic: Mentor ASL Open Chatroom
Time: May 25, 2020 12:00 PM until 10:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada). Come and go as you please.

WKYC Highlights CDI Marla Berkowitz

You can see her and the other interpreters providing ASL access during Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s daily 2pm Press Briefings on http://www.wkyc.com or on the WKYC app.
