‘ASL Bae' Talks about His Mission

Sign language interpreter Billy Sanders got to be known recently through his work at a press conference by D.C.’s mayor as ASL Bae.

Sanders tells D.C.’s NBC-4:

“We’re in the deaf mecca of the U.S., literally, of the world. There is no place like Washington, D.C., due to Gallaudet University being here. I really hope that hearing people cross the bridge to give equity to the deaf people who are right around us. These are our brothers, our sisters, our cousins, our aunts, our uncles.”
