International Day of Sign Languages

International Day of Sign Languages is observed on September 23 each year to spread global awareness about the importance of sign language in the upliftment of people who are deaf. It provides a unique opportunity for supporting and protecting the linguistic identity and cultural diversity of deaf people and other sign language users across the world. The day was observed for the first time in 2018.
The theme for this year’s International Day of Sign Languages is “We Sign For Human Rights”. It emphasizes the importance of international collaboration for the promotion of the use of sign language in all aspects of the life.
