British Deaf Association - Sign Language Week 2019. 18th-24th March.

This week is sign language week and this week is all about the celebration of how language and culture enable us to prosper. For day 4 of this week, the association state:

Deafhood is all about the process of acceptance and celebration of Deaf identity, and sharing our lives with each other as a community. Deafhood reaches beyond nationality and unites us all, but also recognises and celebrates our diverse backgrounds and identities.

Deafhood is something of which we are proud, and our sense of Deafhood has enabled us to remain strong as a community, defy expectations and break down barriers.

Deafhood exemplifies that with sign language and culture – we prosper!
