International Week of the Deaf is an event celebrated throughout the world and promoted by the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD), an international organization representing approximately 70 million people worldwide. The week is a celebration of the achievements of the Deaf community and the rich world of Deaf culture. It also is a reminder of the injustice this community still suffers at the hands of societies across the world. It is the alarm that goes off each year to alert us all that that deaf people from all continents continue to be segregated by linguistic, cultural, economic and political distinctions.
