International Week of Deaf 2021 Day 4: We Sign for Human Rights
Today is the 4th day of the International Week of Deaf 2021! Watch our latest video to learn about the significance of today’s theme!
We are currently in the middle of the International week of the Deaf and today 23 September is the 4th day!
As you all may know by now WFD has given a special theme for each day of the week. Today’s theme is - ‘We Sign For Human Rights!’ Deaf Communities, governments, and leaders have been working very hard for years to create awareness about the 200+ Sign Languages across the world and demanding that these Sign languages be made official by governments. Sign Language is the language of the Deaf and is their human right. By ensuring Deaf individuals are given quality education through sign language, accessibility through interpreters, etc. it will help them succeed in life and live independently & proudly.
Currently many Deaf people depend on hearing family members to communicate, they are not able to make decisions on their own and live an isolated life. Sign Language will change this. So we all should support sign languages as an essential human right for deaf people, and sign for human rights!
