JULY 9, 2015 — PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEAFROC WEBSITE HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED IN MANY YEARS.  IT IS LEFT ONLINE AS A HISTORICAL RESOURCE.  MUCH OF THE INFO IS OUTDATED.  PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

DeafROC’s goal is simple:

Spread the word(s) around Deaf Rochester communities about any Deaf-related news, events, or anything going on in Rochester that Deaf Rochesterians should know about!

We would love to see more people get involved with DeafROC. If you like to take pictures at events, we would gladly share your photos here on DeafROC. If you are an aspiring videographer, maybe you could create TV-news-style reports that we could post here. If you have your own unique idea, now is the time to speak (or sign) up!

How to submit to DeafROC.com:

Everyone is welcome to submit news and flyers of any interests to the deaf community of Rochester, N.Y. Please submit flyers as either JPEG or PDF or Word document. Make sure the flyers are in printable format for distribution.

If you send a flyer, please include a text summary in your email. If you only say “here’s the flyer, please post,” then that’s all it will say on DeafROC. It is better if you write up brief event information and headline so we can be able to copy and paste it here.

DeafROC is hosted by WordPress, which does not allow paid advertising, so everything we do is provided as a volunteer service to the community. Though there is no money for salaries, it’s a great way to gain experience and help build community spirit. If you would like to get involved or send news and flyers, CLICK HERE to send the email.

Materials will be posted as soon as possible as time permits.
