Manos de Washington: Build Your Stories

A narrative-based strategy to build a movement confirming a group's existence and bringing Chicanx/Latinx BIPOC signing communities together to collectively apply the power of narratives to organizing and mobilizing social transformation.

Socorro’s intention is to work with Manos de Washington by planning, strategizing, organizing and mobilizing humanity within multiple signing communities that connect to and serve BIPOC Chicanx/Latinx populations. Her passion is to strive for healing to create healthier emotions, allowing us to reconstruct ourselves in a new, self-aware way.

This training is intended to be Latinx DeafBlind, DeafDisabled, and Deaf space.
