Translators and Interpreters Needed!
We have a dire need to gather our multilingual capacity in order to build political power in our communities. We cannot continue to concede the Asian language spaces to the Right Wing as we have been doing. We must commit to valuing ALL voices in our communities and not fall prey to White Supremacist “English-only” nativist thinking.
This initiative will be key in offsetting various attacks upon the immigrant sectors of our communities extra burdened by language discrimination and empower those who stand the most to gain in campaigns to win equal rights.
Long and short-term campaigns such as for rent control, local school board elections, Medicare-for-All, immigration reform…language justice will enable the most-ignored people in our communities to exercise their political power.
