From National DNO: 'Our goal is to provide you with good times, good folks, and good cheer in good places. To do that we organize Deaf Night Out.' DNO is a regular event 1st Saturdays in SF (except when other community event) for the Deaf & signing communities. Deaf adults, interpreters, signing students (level 3 and above)... We work with network of DNO-Bay Area, DNO-South Bay, DNO-East Bay event hosts that work together to meet a common standard and provide a setting where we can all be welcomed. So check your attitude at the door, let your hair down and your hands fly. Young and old; tall and short; fat and thin; come one, come all and celebrate the richness and diversity of your fabulous community! https://www.facebook.com/groups/dnobayarea/ NEW ASL STUDENTS PLEASE READ... ASL Coffee and DNO are separate events. Most Deaf community members, ASL teachers and DNO itself refer students lower than ASL level 3 to go to ASL Coffee. But, Not DNO. Please offer your seat or space to Deaf or hard of hearing people. 'Make room at the table' or offer your seat. *Deaf Night Out & ASL Epic is a space reserved for ASL ONLY. It is reserved for Deaf, Deaf Blind, and hard of hearing. We ask you to be respectful of the space we desperately need." PLEASE COME. BUT, RESPECT OUR CULTURAL RULES... We live in a hearing world 24/7 and we need a space where we can just be ourselves. With this in mind, no voicing unless by interpreter. Absolutely NO VOICING during chat or social times. ASL Allies are welcome but, if you come to social do not expect people to slow down their signing. Asking for clarification is ok.But, if you still don't understand after continued clarification then sit back and absorb and don't interrupt conversations. ASL Allies please continue to help us build a safe and fun space (e.g.: hearing ASL students, hearing partners or hearing interpreters)!

What we're about

The San Francisco ASL Group is for everyone who is interested to chat in American Sign Language, which is used through out the United States and some parts of Canada. All are welcome: deaf, hard of hearing and hearing!!! All who love to meet other signers, to practice ASL and to have some fun!

This will be a signing only environment. You may use written notes, your own body language (as you do in a foreign country) or fingerspelling but you may not use your voice. We believe that only in an immersive signing environment can you learn a visual language appropriately.

Please don't be intimidated. We are very nice people and help you out whenever you get stuck with signing!

Welcome!!! :)
