Multilingualism at the United Nations: Selected Resources

International Day of Sign Languages

In September we celebrate the International Day of Sign Languages!
Proclaimed by UN General Assembly resolution A/RES/72/161 on December 2017, the International Day of Sign Languages is observed on 23 September  to raise awareness of the importance of sign language in the realization of human rights of people who are deaf. The resolution has been translated to International Sign language.
