Deaf Awareness Week is celebrated annually on the last week of September. Deaf communities all across the world get together to bring awareness to Deaf issues, people, and culture.
It is about gathering together, being united, and showing that unity to the rest of the world. It also focuses on promoting positive aspects to deafness, encouraging social inclusion and raising awareness of organizations that support those who are Deaf. It strives to promote the human rights of Deaf people and highlight topics that merit attention. How can you show support? 1. You can learn ASL 2. You can learn about Deaf culture and history 3.
