The NAD and the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) will be celebrating the International Week of the Deaf during September 23 to 27 this Fall. The WFD has proclaimed this year’s theme as "Equality for Deaf People" - and the NAD will have several initiatives to promote its support for the US Congress to ratify the Convention of Rights for People with Disabilities (#CRPD) during that week.

In a partnership with the US International Council on Disabilities (USICD) and other advocates, the NAD will organize a "Contact Congress" day, a video campaign, and a visit to the Hill for you all to participate. These efforts are for you, the public, to join and show your support for the ratification of the CRPD. The NAD will send out another eBlast with specific details about this week for you all to use and share.
