SLIP values community.  Every year the Glass SLIP'r Award is presented to a company to recognize their dedication to the Deaf community.  To be awarded the Glass SLIP'r Award the business must "GET IT" - they must value communication access and do it becasue it is the right thing to do, not because the law says they have to!  The recipient is chosen by our interpreters and is presented with their very own glass slipper at a recognition ceremony.
