American Sign Language enables Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, and hearing individuals to communicate freely. The 2018 “Be Courageous!” 3-day Regional Convention, entirely in ASL, is planned for August 3-5, 2018. This event will be at the Assembly Hall at 5607 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond, VA. It is sponsored by Jehovah’s Witnesses and will feature presentations, interviews, videos, and Bible dramas. The gathering will include families and individuals travelling from the States of Virginia, North Carolina, Delaware, Maryland as well as from the Washington DC area. This convention is open to the public and free of charge.
Presenters, all fluent in Sign Language, will be projected onto large screens throughout the Assembly Hall. There will be dramatic movies that help bring Bible stories to life. Among hundreds of Deaf attendees will be several delegates who are Deaf and Blind, and assistance is provided so that they are not left out. Those skilled in Sign Language happily support them by acting as their eyes and communicating by touch, as the entire convention will be tactile signed. Deaf & legally Blind individuals have their own TV for close-up viewing of the program.
