Dear SignWriting List Members!

On May 23, 2009, SignWriting was presented at a conference in Brazil:

Congresso Nacional Sobre Surdez

I wish to express my thanks to a very brave teacher in Brazil who is  
teaching SignWriting to deaf students without any funding or  
assistance, but is courageously fighting to continue writing sign  
language as a part of deaf education.

Her name is Maria Salomé Soares Dallan...

The presentation was videotaped and we are waiting permission to post  
the video on our web site, or to link to it...Maria also sent me a  
paper written in Portuguese about is great to realize  
that SignWriting continues in Brazil with such fine teachers...

Thank you, Maria, for all you are doing and for sharing with us!

Val ;-)
