Disrupting Language Oppression: Connecting Language Liberation and Climate Justice

Wednesday, June 22, 2022
11:00 am - 12:30 pm Pacific
Check Your Time Zone Here


This Healing Together Gathering will preview content from our Embracing Language Liberation virtual workshop.

Each of the 6,700 languages spoken today holds unique and valuable ways of seeing, knowing, being, and understanding. Our birth language is how we connect to ourselves, experience belonging, and make sense of the world. We are experiencing global language loss at an unprecedented rate: one language disappears from the planet every 14 days. How many languages have been lost in our own families? Communities? Language Oppression is the result of and perpetuates colonization, racism, climate change, assimilation, and genocide. Language Liberation is a set of practices and assumptions that: intentionally disrupt language dominance; support us to grieve, reclaim and revive lost languages; recognize the ongoing impacts and legacies of colonization and genocide; and ensure more equitable and just contributions, participation, and outcomes.

This session is Part III of our three-part Healing Together Spring Series. Please join us for any and all of these sessions. (If you miss previous sessions in the series, you're welcome to register for later sessions!).
