Main stage speakers on Saturday will be ASL-interpreted, including Mayor Daley, Amy Goodman, Thom Hartmann, Greg Palast, and more.

Contact Andrew at andrew @ coopamerica.org for further information.

Also, if you are Deaf and have attended a previous Green Festival, please contact Andrew for more information about an easy way you can help us sustain and expand our ASL-interpretation services at future Green Festivals. A short letter from you about your experience at Green Festival could help us secure funding for more interpreters in the future.
