DSA Black Lives Matter Public Statement

Since the inception of Deaf Seniors of America (DSA) in 1992, we have upheld the principle that any Deaf senior citizen 50 years of age and older, regardless of race, religion, additional disabilities, and sex orientation, may enjoy the benefits of being a member, including participating in all DSA events as well as in the running and operating of the organization.

DSA stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and the fight for social justice.  We are committed to supporting the Black Deaf Community by changing the system that has far too long created a negative climate of injustice and inequality.  We call upon other Deaf organizations to do the same.  United, we stand!

     DSA and board hopes members and friends follow CDC Covid guidelines. Go to CDC.gov. My name is Alfred Sonnenstrahl. I’m the president of DSA.
     There is a lot of confusion related with the COVID-19 virus. Some people wear face masks. Some won’t. Those who won’t say they would sue for their right not to wear face masks.
