NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Statement from Communication Service for the Deaf
This is a critical milestone for the global Deaf community. There are hundreds of sign languages throughout the world and this new and official Day will help reinforce the continued need for greater inclusion, equality and accessibility for the estimated more than 400 million Deaf and hard of hearing people worldwide.
Deaf peoples' lives, experiences and successes are inextricably linked to sign language just as hearing people's are to spoken language. The United Nations, World Federation of the Deaf and the Permanent Mission of Antigua and Barbuda have taken a bold step with this declaration and all of us at Communication Service for the Deaf join with millions around the world to acknowledge and celebrate the first-ever International Day of Sign Languages.
