DeafBlind Awareness Week 2022

Introduction

A diversified group of about 25 people of all different ethnicities, ages, genders and styles of clothing.

June 26th to July 2nd, 2022

In 2022, we are celebrating Helen Keller DeafBlind Awareness Week from June 26th to July 2nd. The focus this year is Diversity and Inclusion: Creativity and innovation are built upon a diverse group of perspectives. Who better to help initiate that innovation than the DeafBlind community, a group of people whose lives are driven by the pursuit of change and innovation?

THE DEAFBLIND COMMUNITY HAS LEARNED TO SHIFT THEIR PERSPECTIVE. HAVE YOU?

HKNC is the only national agency that provides information, referral, support and a Comprehensive Vocational and Rehabilitation Program exclusively to youths and adults who have a combined hearing and vision loss, to their families and the professionals who work with them. Thank you for your support.

How did DeafBlind Awareness Week come about?

This national advocacy campaign has been held each year since 1984 when President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation in recognition of this special week.
