Did you know that September is Deaf Awareness Month?

It’s that time of year again, folks! For the uninitiated, September is International Deaf Awareness Month, and with it comes a chance to make our voices heard. Deaf Awareness Month began as the International Day of the Deaf back in 1958, which was first championed by the World Federation of the Deaf. Since then, it has been extended to the “International Week of the Deaf,” which comprises the last full week of September.
