Hi My name is Antoine Hunter and I am deaf .I feel it is important for me to set up a place where hearing and deaf people can meet up and speak the beautiful language of Sign Language.
I love sign Language and sharing things about what in our deaf community. It is VERY important for me to participating in the deaf community and culture, and may we never feel that we get enough.
East bay Berkeley and Oakland- Do not often have people to come together and sign so I felt it is important to continue it. Jamil Walker help set up Berkeley ASL meet up. He did a very good job and now step down. I want to thank him to all his hard work. We must keep this alive, because we need a place to go. Without our place or without a home- we are lost. Get ready for some fun ASL meet up. FEEL free to alway email me idea or what ever come to your heart. So far we had Pool tables night, Dance and sign, wine and oyster night, bowling, pools and so much more.
Hearing people : This is the place to fine more deaf to hang out with and other people who are learning ASL. It ALWAY FUN to learn ASL in the East Bay Area. Do not feel scare to come learn our language and it ok if you know nothing about Sign Language because I would be more than happy and excited to teach you our language- ( bring pen and bring paper and good energy.) All Level are welcome.
Deaf/Hard of Hearing people: Sometime it hard to find other people who are in local area and know ASL this is going to be the perfect place to meet other deaf and hearing who share the language of ASL, BSL, ESL, SEE and more.
We Continue to bring you, the East Bay Area Berkeley/Oakland ASL Meetup Group.
Please Come hang out, meet new people (deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing), and converse in American Sign Language! Any level of signer are alway welcome!
Rules: HAVE FUN AND MINGLES!
Some place said No voice should be used. This group we say it better to practice no voice but no one will send you away if you are using your voice but as long as you are trying to communicate in ASL then it a winner for you. All my deaf friend tend to use their voice. Please don't worry if you get stuck we have very vool people and help you out. We are a team. This a place to meet, learn and enjoy. Enjoy life and sign.
