The Arkansas Deaf-Blind Community (ADBC) is very excited to host the fifth Deaf-Blind Retreat in Arkansas on October 19-22, 2017. It will be held at the beautiful Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center in Ferndale about 10 miles west of Little Rock. The theme of the retreat will be “HARVEST TIME”. This retreat is for adults who are deaf-blind. It is also an excellent opportunity for Support Service Providers (SSPs) and volunteer-interpreters who want to enrich their experience to work and have fun with deaf-blind campers. ADBC is working hard to make this retreat as exciting and enjoyable as possible, and we hope you will consider coming and join the fun.

The Carnalismo National Brown Berets along with the American Indian Movement Indian Territory Chapter and the Oklahoma Association of the Deaf and/or hard of hearing will be marching from City Hall to the Oklahoma City Police Department to rally for the senseless murder of Magdiel Sanchez who was walking in his neighborhood. Officers responding to a hit and run confronted Mr. Sanchez and after numerous people shouted to the officers that Mr. Sanchez was hearing impaired, the officers proceeded to tazze and shoot him taking his life because he was not obeying commands. Come show your support with signs and photos.
