Thank You Starbucks for Reaching Out to the Deaf Community in the Most Amazing Way
Many of you might not know but after leaving WKFR in 2003 I went back to school and got my degree in American Sign Language (my parents said I would find someway to talk at all times)! I found this great article in Huff Post, which describes something amazing Starbucks in Malaysia has done for the Deaf community there,
Starbucks Malaysia partnered with the Society of Interpreters for the Deaf, which advocates for equal rights for the deaf community, to open the store on Wednesday. This Starbucks location offers jobs to people who are deaf, and also makes ordering easier for deaf customers.
I have always love Starbucks Coffee, and the company has been a huge supporter for the Deaf community in Detroit, but this latest step is incredible! In our world today, what we need to do is communicate, and this is how its done!
