What is DWU?

Founded in 1985, Deaf Women United (DWU) is a national organization that is dedicated to serving Deaf women by providing resources that connect these women to empowerment of self and others through advocacy, education, and outreach. Deaf communities are spread out, making it even more crucial to develop opportunities for networking where information can be exchanged. Ultimately, these opportunities will enhance the quality of all Deaf women’s lives.
Deaf Women United aspires to be a significant contributor to the community of Deaf women from all walks of life and this is accomplished by recognizing, valuing, and embracing their additional identities. You can take a part in accomplishing the goal of empowering Deaf women with us. We offer numerous ways of getting involved. Explore our features and get in touch.
