UN declared 23rd Sept as International Day of Sign Language

Hello!

My name is A.S. Narayanan

That’s my sign name.

I am the President of the National Association of the Deaf, India.

I have some news for you!

I am very happy that the World Federation of the Deaf has been advocating with Antigua and Barbuda. It's in the southern coast of USA. WFD and Antigua & Barbuda, worked together requesting the United Nations, UN in New York for the International Day of Sign Languages.

The UN accepted the proposal but said that they will need approval from all member Countries. So all the officials came  at the UN assembly and question was raised that they agree with having an International Day of Sign Languages. It will be observed on 23 September every year.

The assembly agreed and accepted the proposal on 18 December 2017.

Why they chose 23 September? Because the World Federation of the Deaf held its first conference in Italy on September 23. Now every year on 23 September International Day of Sign Languages will be celebrated. We are proud and congratulate Mr. Colin Allen (President, WFD). Plus, the people from WFD who worked hard and pushed for International Day of Sign Languages to be approved by UN.

This year 2018 will be the first time on 23 September all over the world International Day of Sign Languages will be celebrated.

We are proud and congratulate them again.

Thank you for watching.
