Language Justice 101
Introduction to Language Justice Webinar: Is a virtual popular-education based training led by Cenzontle and tilde Language Justice Cooperatives with the goal of promoting a language justice culture and practice in organizations large and small. The webinar introduces language justice concepts and “better practices”, gaining interest and buy-in across the organization, and encouraging everyone to think about how language justice can support their goals. Language justice is an ever-evolving framework and set of practices that ensure that people can lead, communicate, and participate fully in their communities, regardless of the languages or linguistic variants they use. Language justice pairs interpretation, translation, language learning, and other tools with an understanding of how power operates through language. In the U.S. context, our goal is to create multilingual institutions that decenter [white mainstream, spoken] English and build solidarity beyond linguistic borders.
This training will have English, Spanish, and ASL interpreters. Attendees will receive a $30 DoorDash or Food Lion gift card.
