PCRID stands for the Potomac Chapter of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf and is an affiliate chapter of the REgistry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). Our professional organization serves the sign language interpreter community of Maryland and the District of Columbia.


Our mission is to support the continued growth and development of the sign language interpreting profession. We are committed to advancing the quality, professionalism, and integrity of sign language interpreting in Maryland and the District of Columbia through education, information and advocacy.

black lives matter.

PCRID stands with the Black community and others around the world with a commitment to end racism, violence, and injustice. We acknowledge the horrific events which have led to the outrage being expressed all around the U.S. and the world in response to a long history of not being listened to and actions not being taken to end police brutality and systemic oppression.

We PCRID acknowledge that power and privilege, together with explicit and implicit biases have resulted in inequities in the field of sign language interpreting. We acknowledge the impact to Black interpreters and to the Black Deaf community and stand with you— our community, colleagues, friends, and fellow humans— being a relentless demand that Black voices are heard, and Black lives are held vital.
