SALT LAKE CITY, March 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today the Utah Task Force of Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing announced that Dawn Duran, SC:L and NIC Advanced interpreter will lead the initiative with the guidance of the Utah Association of the Deaf.
“We are thrilled with the appointment and confident that Ms. Duran is the best choice for the role,” said ASL Communication CEO, Crystina Scott. “She brings incredible experience, compassion, and energy to the challenges and opportunities in the Deaf community and will be a leader in every way, on behalf of the Deaf and hard of hearing.”
The Utah Task Force is designed to ensure that all state and local regulations are being upheld and further, that the Deaf and hard of hearing community are being served. As state services in Utah for the Deaf continue to increase, the need for community members that work on behalf of that community to oversee and measure efforts, grows with it.
“I am grateful to serve and support the rights and values of so many outstanding members of the hearing and Deaf community,” said Duran in a statement. “It is imperative that we continue to actively engage with the Deaf community and support their efforts to ensure their rights, dignity, and identity continue to be protected and recognized.”
Ms. Duran will continue with her position as Vice President for ASL Communication while she conducts her role on the task force.
