PSA in Sign Language Comes to NYCs Times Square
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
A 15-second video presented in American Sign Language now appears on the CBS Super Screen at Times Square, where more than 300,000 pedestrians traffic daily. This is possibly the first video placement by a Deaf-run agency at Times Square, one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world.
The public service announcement is produced by Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services (ADWAS), based in Seattle. We intend to raise awareness of domestic and sexual violence within the Deaf Community and compel a dialogue on it, said Executive Director Tiffany Williams, who is deaf, as is the majority of staff members at ADWAS.
