This just looked like another one of those videos where someone takes a picture of themselves every day of the year, but by the end I had realized it was something much different.
Warning: This video contains graphic and shocking material at the end. The video is from the Croatian government addressing a very real concern. After you watch the video, you will note she is holding a sign. The translation is "Help me, I do not know if I can wait until tomorrow."
The Deaf Community is a beautiful linguistic and cultural minority. But we also experience domestic and sexual violence at a greater incidence as a minority population.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline partners with ADWAS to provide a Hotline staffed by Deaf advocates who answer calls from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday in American Sign Language. Through empowerment philosophy, Deaf advocates truly understand who they are helping, and can easily communicate information and promote access to resources with culturally sensitive training.
