International Perspectives on Human Rights

 


Wilma Newhoudt-DruchenBruno Druchen
Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen,'92 & MSW-'05 and Bruno Druchen

Wilma and Bruno Druchen will discuss the legacy of DPN on an international scale. How has the spirit of DPN inspired other disability rights movements to reaffirm sign language rights, including the important work that led to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities?

This would draw on their extensive knowledge as leaders of not only South Africa, but also as collaborators with the United Nations, and the World Federation of the Deaf. 

The Honorable Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen is the first deaf person to be elected to the South African Parliament and a Gallaudet alum.
