What we’re about
The San Francisco Signing Space 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!
Code of Conduct
We are dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive, welcoming, and harassment-free space and experience for all community participants.
If you also host an ASL Meetup in the Bay Area and would like to be linked, let me know.

Upcoming events (1)See all
- October 2023 ASL Social at Mission Dolores ParkDolores Park, San Francisco, CA
Thank you for joining us in August! We had a lot of people attended and snacking on food and connecting with each other!
You’re invited for a Saturday afternoon at Mission Dolores Park on October 14! Join us, make new friends, meet them again, and of course, create a signing space, as Shea called it, with us!
Beginners and families are always welcome to this event, even if you are only a few months into learning ASL.
The goal of The San Francisco ASL Group is to provide a space for people to get together and socialize. This event is welcoming of ASL students, whether they have learned in class, from friends, or online.
Remember to wear sunscreen, bring parasols or shades, and stay hydrated.
P.S. We're interested in having more Deaf events and ASL socials, but it depends on you wanting to! Expectations: You're Deaf and/or heavily involved in the Deaf community; you enjoy volunteering; you know how to network and communicate via ASL.
