This upcoming September 23rd marks the International Day of Sign Language as recognized by the United Nations. This day is important as it supports the continued protection of the linguistic identity and cultural diversity of deaf folks and all other sign language users. The World Federation of the Deaf states that there are around 72 million deaf people worldwide, and more than 80% of them live in developing countries. For this year, the World Federation of the Deaf is “issuing a Global Leaders Challenge… [which] aims to promote the use of sign languages by local, national, and global leaders in partnership with national associations of deaf people in each country, as well as other deaf-led organizations.” Check out the official link for details!
