I am happy to inform you about World Disability Day on 3rd December 2017 at India Gate, Delhi.
We will start at 10 am.
I want all of you Deaf people to come together for the special day.
The highlight of the event will be Right of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016, that got passed last year.
It will be its one year anniversary soon.
We want to show the Government and the media of the strength of the disability sector as all the 21 types of disabilities will be together.
At the same time, the new disability law benefits the Deaf people a lot as it mentions about sign language.
NAD is planning to put up a suggestion to the Government for “National Sign Language Day”.
We have International Women’s Day on March 8, World AIDS Day on December 1, World Disability Day on December 3 etc.
So we want the Government to recognize the Deaf community in India. We will lobby and are hopeful to have the National Sign Language Day on September 22,
as PM approved ISLRTC as an autonomous body on 22nd September 2015.
This will be very important and special so I request all the Deaf Indians to come and support. We need more than 15,000 people.
Lunch will be provided.
All are welcome and I will be glad to see you there soon.
