Webinar – “A Conversation with Marlee Matlin: From Oscar to West Wing and Beyond”
Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A free event in celebration of Deaf Awareness Month
Marlee Matlin will share the highs and lows of her Hollywood career and journey as an activist. The youngest recipient of the Best Actress Oscar, Matlin’s acting career recently achieved another milestone as her 2021 film “CODA” swept every category it was nominated in at the 2022 Academy Awards.
A longtime advocate for deaf rights, Matlin continues to break down barriers for herself and others through her acting, awareness and writing. As she has stated, “The only thing I can’t do is hear. The rest is there for the taking.”
