 News/Upcoming Event

International Deaf Awareness Week
is observed every year in the last whole week of September from Sunday to Saturday. The first World Congress of The Deaf was held in the last week of September in 1951 and since then the final week in the month of September came to be  specially marked to be a activity and awareness program against deafness. The main purpose behind the Deaf Awareness Week is to know the people with the problem, understand their issues and to know about their accomplishments. (Taken from Altius Directory website)

Be aware of the William J. Marra Museum
See how one person's collection of deaf-related things evolved into one of the largest deaf-related collections in the world.

Check out the Deaf Cultural Center website (see bottom of page) for a list of Deaf Awareness Week activities.
