A Tour of the White House’s West Wing in Sign Language

Leah Katz-Hernandez is the West Wing Receptionist and her job is to welcome everyday Americans and world leaders alike to the West Wing, the Executive Office Building where the President of the United States’ offices are located. Known informally as ROTUS (Receptionist of the United States), she is the first deaf person in that role.

In this video honoring the 26th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Katz-Hernandez gives us a tour of the West Wing in American Sign Language. We’ll get to hear some fascinating facts about the West Colonnade, the Rose Garden, the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room, the Cabinet Room, the Oval Office, and more.

Enjoy a few more sign language videos on this site, as well as this 25 minute tour of the International Space Station.
