What we're about

This group is for anyone who is Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Hearing who knows or has interest in American Sign Language and likes to socialize. This group is also to help anyone who wants to practice American Sign Language. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic this group is currently meeting virtually every other Wednesday and Saturday.

All members are friendly, respectful, patient, and FUN. This group is based in Philadelphia, PA but other cities or states are more than welcome to this group. Members have kept this group going now for over 15 years and continue to keep the weekly meet-ups well attended event.

UPDATE # 1: In March 2021 we will begin hosting meet-ups EVERY Wednesday from 7:30-8:30 and EVERY Saturday from 6:30-8:30. We typically have topics and use the breakout room feature when we meet once weekly. Now that we will be meeting more, there may be some days when we are unable to use the breakout room feature but we can still have fun without it!

UPDATE # 2: Starting in March 2021 we will offer breakout rooms for beginner ASL learners with a facilitator on the FIRST Wednesday and Saturday of every month. If you are a beginner and would like to be put into a beginner breakout room, please send us a message to let us know. We will also ask if anyone would like to join those rooms at the beginning of the meet up.

UPDATE # 3: We are working on setting up a way for members to contribute some money to our meet-up so we can keep it going. You will receive an email once that is set up. You are not required to contribute but if you enjoy the meet up and would like to help out , any contribution would be very appreciated.

If you would like to join our email list, just send us a message and we will add you. We will have links posted to each meet up so you can easily access them.

Please reach out with any feedback or questions!

We also want to share information about other Deaf and ASL events, happenings, and classes in the area - check it out here (https://www.meetup.com/PhillyASLMeetup/messages/boards/forum/2371512).

Anything related to sign language that you want to see, let us know and we'll try to accommodate! Check out info about how to learn sign language online here (https://www.meetup.com/PhillyASLMeetup/pages/Sign_Language_Learning_Resources)!

Thank you for joining and if you know anyone who wants to join, please spread the word!

Hope to see you soon!

Take Care,

Alison and Sicily
