I am thrilled to welcome International Week of the Deaf (IWD). The theme for this year is ‘Full Inclusion with Sign Language’, a motto that the WFD constantly promotes and advocates. IWD is the perfect opportunity to spread the theme and create global awareness on the importance of sign language for the Deaf Community. We have created campaign materials including the IWD 2017 Toolkit and Letter of Support for all of you to use freely. Download them at the IWD 2017 webpage here.
Advocating for inclusion does not happen overnight. It requires active participation from the WFD in important international forums to create presence and increase awareness on importance of sign language. In this September newsletter issue, I am pleased to share how the WFD is doing our part to promote full inclusion with sign language.
