International Day of Sign Languages

International Day of Sign Languages

The International Day of Sign Languages is an annual event observed on September 23rd to raise awareness about sign languages and to promote the rights of deaf people worldwide. The day was first celebrated in 2018, following a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly.

The International Day of Sign Languages aims to highlight the importance of sign languages as a means of communication and to promote the recognition of sign languages as official languages in their own right. Sign languages are visual languages that use hand gestures, facial expressions, and body movements to convey meaning, and are used by millions of people around the world who are deaf or hard of hearing.

On this day, various events are organized to promote sign languages and to raise awareness of the challenges faced by the deaf community. These events may include sign language workshops, conferences, public lectures, cultural activities, and social gatherings.

The International Day of Sign Languages is an important opportunity to recognize the linguistic and cultural diversity of the deaf community and to promote their inclusion and participation in society. It also provides a platform for advocating for the rights of deaf people, including their right to education, employment, and access to information and services.
