International Left-Handers Day History

International Left-Handers Day seeks to celebrate people that are left-handed. This day aims to raise awareness about the everyday issues left-handed people face living in a right-handed society. Some of these issues are the result of technology being available for right-handed people but being uncomfortable or inaccesible for left-handed people.

International Left-Handers Day was established in 1992 by the Left-Handers Club. It is observed annually on August 13th.
