We, as Maine RID, have a platform, and a duty to use our platform to stand in solidarity with BIPOC interpreters and Deaf people and say,
BLACK LIVES MATTER.
As interpreters, and as members of RID, we have a duty to continue to dismantle and unpack bias, privilege, power and oppression as a requirement to being an interpreter. Maine RID commits itself to this. https://rid.org/…/power-privilege-and-oppression-ppo-ceus/
