NORTHRIDGE—CSUN will be hosting their third and final Audism lecture for this year on Friday, December 5. CSUN has had several prestigious presenters come and sign for their audiences over the past three months. Their last presenter will be Sheri Farinha, a leader and advocate in the Deaf community.
Farinha grew up Deaf, was mainstreamed, and was heavily interested in politics with her family’s help. She has won several awards and petitioned several times for causes near and dear to the Deaf community.
She will be returning to her alma mater to present on the topic of, “Political Barriers To Quality Education Of Deaf Children.” Her presentation is scheduled from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in CSUN’s Valley Performing Arts Center. The event is free to the public to attend.
