Our logo of a gray hand, rapt eye, and red-striped heart is designed to be visually and metaphorically resonant for a center housed at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., the only liberal arts university in the world for deaf people using ASL. Effective communication across differences for deaf people is first achieved by opening our hearts and listening with our eyes, as we attempt to understand the world not in primary colors but in shades of gray. Then, we sign with our hands to be understood in our pursuit of a more perfect union.
