Interpreters for the Deaf
ORID is a community of volunteers striving to promote the socialization and professionalism of our interpreting community. Collectively, we empower local interpreters to continually advance our community, the profession, and its standards through a collaborative approach prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion. As an affiliate chapter of RID, we represent Oregon and Southwest Washington’s interpreters at the national level by initiating leadership at the local level.
Please join ORID in improving the interpreting community of Oregon by becoming a member, and actively participating in setting the organization’s agenda.

ORID hosts and partners with other organizations to host workshops on a wide range of topics. We plan workshops around the state so they are available to interpreters throughout Oregon and provide information about virtual on-demand options for professional development.
