Language Justice, part 2: How to apply LJ to your food system work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In a nation in which ~85% of farmworkers identify as hispanic (of which most report Spanish as their language of choice), it is crucial that those doing food and agricultural systems work learn about strategies to bridge language difference. In this session, attendees will learn concrete tools to assess an initiative’s alignment with language justice (LJ), a process used to ensure all voices are heard. In break-out groups, attendees will get support to conduct a LJ assessment of their project, create actionable next steps, and receive feedback from a team of LJ practitioners. Part 2 of 2. It is strongly requested that you attend Part 1 before coming to this session.
