The final game of the American football season, the “Big Game,” is one of the most watched annual sporting events in the world. In any given year it commands over 100 million viewers. But not everyone watches for the joy of sport: The ads that run during commercial breaks have become one of the event’s biggest attractions.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting has a diversity problem. Nationwide, 85% of interpreters identify as white and just 15% identify as a racial or ethnic minority. This demographic makeup stands in stark contrast to the broader U.S. population, which according to the 2020 Census, is 61.6% white. From barriers due to differences in dialects to issues of implicit trust, a lack of diversity among ASL interpreters poses major challenges within increasingly diverse Deaf communities.
Here are just three reasons why diversity matters in ASL interpreting:
