Deaf Unity In The USA!

Published: Sep 8th, 2013

We are excited to tell you that our CEO, Abdi, is currently extending the borders of our work and is visiting the States for a month. He has been recognised by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust ( and was made a Fellow for 2013.

Abdi is in America for a month researching various elements of empowerment and access: identifying best practice and evaluating its application to a UK context. The results will be published within the UK community and will inform Deaf Unity’s future activities and lobbying in the future. This is an amazing opportunity for Abdi and for Deaf Unity.

Whilst some of the his findings and meetings will be of interest to you all, we appreciate that some of his general comments and musings may not fit with the personality of this section. In order to capture all his thoughts, Abdi has made a blog for the duration of the trip: Deaf Unity in The USA!

Feel free to bookmark it and check in regularly – he has promised regular posts. Items of specific interest shall be reposted or signposted here.

Enjoy following Abdi as he flies the DU flag in America.
