Are you confused about why you owe a lot of taxes when you file? Are you currently sitting on a huge tax bill that you don’t know how to handle?

This webinar will explain various payment options that are available if you find yourself with a large tax bill that you can’t afford. It will also teach you how to avoid owing large balances in the future by ensuring correct estimated taxes and withholdings are paid throughout the year. In addition, we will examine several real-life scenarios to help interpreters apply the concepts taught and gain an idea of how they can apply them to their own unique situations. *Note: The activities presented are opportunities for you to practice applying these concepts. You are not required to make any payments to the IRS or submit any forms to your employers if you do not want to. You are also not required to make any online accounts if you do not want to.*

    This activity has been approved for 0.2 RID Professional Studies CEUs. This workshop will review the research on the history and structure of Black ASL and discuss where an awareness of language varieties and dialects fits into the interpretation process. This workshop fits squarely into the area of language and cultural development and into the exploration and expansion of language and cultural repertoires. Following the review of the research and the viewing of the documentary on Black ASL - Signing Black in America - the workshop participants will be divided into groups and asked to discuss questions concerning the relationship between language varieties and interpreting. The groups will then be brought back together to share their findings and participate in a general discussion and Q & A. The workshop will last ninety minutes. The questions and the discussion will deal with what it means for interpreters to use Black ASL and how interpreters know when to use African American English. With Black ASL as the foundation and the starting point, perspectives on the varieties of other languages, both spoken and signed, such as Spanish and French will be welcome. The workshop will be interactive and will engage and elevate the discourse around interpreting for Black Deaf consumers and consumers whose repertoires include varieties of Spanish, French, and other languages. In addition to working interpreters and students of interpreters, it will benefit teachers, counselors, and professionals in the field of interpreting.

The policies being enacted and decisions made now will have generational impacts on previous LGBTQ advancements. LGBTQ Americans are vulnerable and uncertain about rights that were once protected and secured and that now have been eroded. Come to learn the latest about targeted anti-LGBTQ efforts and what can be done.
