NIEVA was founded in 2003 and received it’s 501 (c) 3 designation in February of 2005, as a result of the diligent work done by Ray Wallace and Scott Wolf, members of a distinguished NIEVA board that has a combined 50 years of experience in the non-profit field.

Central to NIEVA’s mission is the belief that ASL is a legitimate language that empowers its users and is a conduit through which education, culture, and integrity is proliferated.

NIEVA’s mission involves both promoting the individual growth of native users of ASL, and enhancing community interaction by working to dissolve the barriers and misunderstandings that divide the ASL culture from the world at large. NIEVA strives to do this through an array of outlets including media productions, community events, and educational workshops.
