International Week of the Deaf 2020 WFD

The International Week of the Deaf is an initiative of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) and is celebrated every year in the last week of September, this year that is 21st to 27th.

The theme this year is “Reaffirming Deaf People’s Human Rights.” Each year the Irish Deaf Society celebrates this week with a programme of activities titled “Irish Sign Language Awareness Week”.

As part of that celebration the Irish Deaf Society have conducted interviews and created information videos for sharing online throughout the week. Each day they will explore a different theme and you are invited to view the content, share and comment on the Irish Deaf Society’s social channels, Facebook and Twitter.
