Deaf-Blind Awareness

Description: DeafBlind woman with brown hair being pulled back, is wearing a maroon shirt with 3 buttons on front and 3/4 length sleeves with one button on each sleeve. She is standing behind a yellow door with eye hole and tan wall on the right. 

Transcript: This year, Deafblind awareness week will take place from June 23-27 2019. This annual event draws attention to Deafblind individuals throughout the United States. This week coincides with Helen Kellers birthday which is on June 27th. We have been honouring Helen for over 25 years, and she is a role model for the Deafblind community. Helen has served as a prime example that Deafblind people can be successful and independent. Her story has been the spark behind empowering those who are Deafblind to achieve their goals. This includes job training, learning braille, living in the community and becoming gainfully employed. I encourage you to celebrate this event, and remember that people in the Deafblind world are capable and successful individuals within your community! 

Thank you.
