International Day of Sign Languages 2024

September 23, 2024

September 23 marks the annual celebration of the International Day of Sign Languages.

September 23 marks the annual celebration of the International Day of Sign Languages. Established by the United Nations General Assembly, CCRW recognizes the importance of sign languages in the realization of human rights for the Deaf community and sign language users across the globe. The day aims to raise awareness of the Deaf community's issues and challenges, celebrating the richness of sign language culture and promoting linguistic diversity.

Sign language holds immense significance as a rich and dynamic means of communication for the Deaf and hard of hearing community. Beyond being a mode of conveying information, it serves as a gateway to a vibrant cultural and linguistic world that fosters connection and understanding. The importance of sign language extends far beyond its practical utility; it embodies the fundamental right of every individual to communicate and participate fully in society. By embracing and promoting sign language, we not only empower the Deaf community but also contribute to a more inclusive and diverse society. It is a testament to the richness of human expression and a reminder that communication is not confined to spoken words alone.

In recognizing and valuing sign language, we pave the way for a more inclusive and accessible world where everyone can engage in meaningful dialogue, breaking down barriers and fostering a deeper sense of community.
