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 We've made available this digital archive of the TBC News here as historical reference and still relevant topics for our communities.
