  • ASL Night was an event held at the Civic Event Center in Denver to celibate Deaf history and culture in Colorado.

  • The event included performances from many members of the Deaf community, as well as tables from sponsors supporting the event.

  • ASL Night took place in September to celebrate Deaf Heritage and Awareness month. It highlights the importance of access to communication such as interpreters at events and the culture behind Sign.
