Three Deaf artists presented about their own experiences hosting art workshops for Deaf, DeafDisabled and Hard of Hearing people who are incarcerated in upstate New York prisons. HEARD's intern & volunteer who are also RIT/NTID students shared their experiences as youth advocates with HEARD. Monroe County Sheriff's Dept learned from the communityand shared about their recent connection with RIT & HEARD to improve access to law enforcement services for the Monroe County Community.
