Deaf Awareness Week

This week, we observe Deaf Awareness Week (May 6-12, 2024), a time to celebrate the rich culture and contributions of the Deaf community while raising awareness about the challenges they face. As we strive to create a more inclusive and accessible society, let’s take this opportunity to learn about Deaf history, culture, and the importance of sign languages. By promoting understanding and respect for the Deaf community, we can work together to ensure equal access to education, employment, and all aspects of life for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. Let’s use this week as a reminder to keep moving forward in our efforts to break down barriers and build a world where everyone is seen, heard, and valued. We have put a few recommended titles below to help you begin your own journey into learning more about Deaf & Hard of Hearing Culture.
