In what language do you dream? In what language do you express your feelings of love, anger, or passion? Creating multilingual spaces where folks can express themselves in the language they are most comfortable in is critical when doing social justice work. This workshop will focus on the politics and principles of language justice and multilingual organizing by sharing our experiences and best practices as interpreters and community organizers.
