International Week of Deaf People 2022 – Sept 19-25

Posted by City of Philadelphia on September 13, 2022

September is National Deaf Awareness Month. The Week of September 19- 25, 2022 is International Week of Deaf People 2022. Did you know many of our partners have long served the Philadelphia Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing (HOH) communities?

The Deaf Hearing Communication Center (DHCC), who provides support for City sponsored events, recently celebrated 50 years of serving these communities. The Pennsylvania School for the Deaf has been a leader in this space for over 200 years! The Philadelphia Chapter of Black Deaf Advocates recently celebrated 40 years of service and advocacy for the Black Deaf community of Philadelphia as well.

Let’s all expand how we include the Deaf, DeafBlind, and HOH communities in our work together.
