We Appreciate You!

May 1, 2024 is Interpreter Appreciation Day! Step into a space of gratitude and celebration as we honor our incredible ASL interpreters on this special occasion. This year, we’re expressing our appreciation in a unique way through this Interpreter Appreciation Wall, where every word penned is a testament to the invaluable contributions of our interpreters. Take a look at messages that we have received over the past year from consumers, coordinators and fellow interpreters and our COO. Joining us in this tribute, our VP of Interpreting Services has also contributed a video of kind signs for our interpreters, recognizing the profound impact on fostering communication, understanding, and unity within our community.

A message of appreciation from Cory Brunner, VP of Interpreting Services.

As we mark the end of another year of service, I want to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to each and every one of you. Your dedication as interpreters has not only bridged communication gaps but has also built connections that transcend words.

Your work across the nation, often under challenging circumstances, has been nothing short of inspiring. It is because of your commitment that voices were heard, stories were shared, and lives were undoubtedly changed.

As a service-disabled veteran, I understand the value of support and the strength it provides. You have been that support for countless individuals, ensuring that their right to communicate is upheld with dignity and respect.

Please accept my heartfelt thanks for your tireless efforts over the past year. Your work is a testament to the human spirit's ability to empower and uplift.

With warm regards and immense appreciation,

Jason Evans, COO
