As the national association representing the growing field of professional interpreters, RID’s strategic focus encompasses advocacy, outreach and, other areas of interest that may have an impact on the profession as a whole.
RID is involved in community organizations and federal working groups to ensure the needs of interpreters are addressed on a variety of levels. Our reach also extends to organizations who serve the Deaf and hard of hearing community. Some of the organizations of which RID is a member include the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Alliance (DHHA), the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Alliance – Consumer Action Network (DHHA-CAN), the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Consumer Advisory Committee, the Coalition of Organization for Accessible Technology and the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Accessibility Committee.
