Dear Deaf Action Center Friends,
On behalf of the Deaf and/or hard of hearing community, we invite you to join our community of partners to celebrate our many accomplishments as we move together toward an even brighter future!
The 2017 “Beacon of Hope” Gala will include a VIP reception followed by a formal dinner and keynote speaker program. Leaders of the Deaf and/or hard of hearing community from across the state will gather in Dallas in a night of celebration and collective purpose to enhance the lives of those in our population we serve
The Gala's theme will be “Welcome Home” in the excitement of the previously held and successful groundbreaking of our new neighborhood community, Martha’s Vineyard Place, held on November 23, 2015. We are naming this new community in honor of a historic community on Martha’s Vineyard island in which everyone communicated in sign language – often considered a “deaf utopia” in the 19th century. Just as that community provided a model for honoring alternate modes of communication, DAC’s new neighborhood community aims to provide such an atmosphere for Dallas residents today.

We hope you will join us!
