Amazon promotes Deaf Pride, releases logo in American Sign Language
April 29, 2018
Amazon is promoting the American Sign Language (ASL) version of its logo. This is also an extension of its efforts to support the ASL community at Amazon, which is made up of deaf and hard of hearing employees.
The initiative was led by Brendan Gramer from Amazon who said -
