Hello! My name is Joe Toledo representing ITOC, Interpreter and transliterator of Color Member Section. I am here to share about our Leadership Award.  We want to honor those who have made a huge impact in our community.  We ask you to nominate those who have contributed to this community of interpreters of color, the Deaf community of color, RID, and etc. Add your nominees to this google form before May 31st.   We look forward to receiving your nominations. Thanks!

Again, We want to honor those interpreters of color (Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Hearing) who have made a difference in our field.  Tell us why they should be recognized. What type of contributions have they made to their community (This may be volunteer service at the local, regional, or national level. It could be educational achievements that aim to advance the interpreting profession overall or specifically for interpreters of color. Or, something else not listed here that is worthy of recognition).
