BSL Act Now
Many Deaf people of all ages, deafblind people and interpreters from all over the UK attended a special historical and momentous day at Trafalgar Square in London.
On the same date; 18th March, the UK government formally recognised BSL as a language in its own right in 2003, after the community came together to rally for change.
This time there were excellent speeches from the BSL act team and MP Rosie Cooper spoke at the Houses of Parliament, where the third reading of the bill was approved without opposition. We are now awaiting the reading of the bill in the House of Lords.
Here are some of our Black Country residents, enjoying this glorious day.
