The Mission

Some years ago we decided to preserve some personal stories of Deaf people in American Sign Language.  We had been inspired by the StoryCorps project and wanted to do something similar.  Collecting more stories continues to be our aim.  We do have some recordings sitting on the shelf awaiting some editing and will post them here when they are ready.  

The stories below are in American Sign Language only with no captioning and no voice-over.  

If you would like to participate in this project in some way, please be in touch with us.  Perhaps you would like to gather stories or submit one of your own?
