TBC News

BMC and MJBCo-directors Betty M. Colonomos and MJ Bienvenu developed innovative workshops that pushed the envelope for the interpreting field and the Deaf community around issues of the day. Not surprisingly, some of those issues remain today.

The monthly newsletter, TBC News, highlighted many of these issues, inspiring many to rally for change in their own thinking and in the communities where they lived. We've made available this digital archive of the TBC News here as historical reference and still relevant topics for our communities.

From An Open Letter from Tom Willard: It is not enough for us to say that institutions such as Gallaudet and NTID should hire more deaf people. It is necessary for those of us who are qualified to work at these institutions to APPLY for the jobs. Then, if we apply for a position and get turned down in favor of a hearing person, it is vital that we find out the qualifications of that person and compare those qualifications with our own ability to do the job. If we see a hearing person take the job and we feel that we are better qualified, then it becomes necessary to take whatever action we feel will bring us the results that we desire.
