Join Oregon APSE in a conversation with Marlee Matlin. She is a renowned advocate for diversity. Come to be boldly challenged to advocate inclusion, acceptance, and access for all people and access for all people to endeavor to live a life without judgement of others –everybody’s different and nobody’s perfect. Walk away informed and empowered to make a difference in the world with the new knowledge... even in these changing times.

Award Winning Actress & Activist


Marlee Matlin received worldwide critical acclaim for her film debut in Paramount Pictures’ Children of a Lesser God, for which she received the Academy award for Best Actress. At 21, she became the youngest recipient of the Best Actress Oscar and only one of four actresses to receive the honor for her field debut. In additional to the Oscar, Matlin received the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama.

Since winning the Oscar and Golden Globe for Children of a Lesser God, Matlin has starred in numerous features including Walker, The Player, Hear No Evil, It’s My Party, and What the Bleep Do We Know. She has also starred in TV films Bridge to Silence, Against Her Will: The Carrie Buck Story, Dead Silence, Freak City, Where the Truth Lies, and Hallmark Hall of Fame’s Sweet Nothing in my Ear.

With even more outstanding series, movies, and TV dramas, in 2009, Matlin published her New York Times best-selling autobiography I’ll Scream Later and has authored three novels for children: Deaf Child Crossing, Nobody’s Perfect, and Leading Ladies. Most recently, CODA, now an Apple Original Film, had its world premiere on January 28, 2021, at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.
