ABOUT THE CENTER FOR LANGUAGE JUSTICE:

At the Center for Language Justice, we see language learning as a meaningful, collaborative and transformative process reflected in our training in hands-on communicative and task-based language teaching approaches and our use of popular education in the language classroom. We seek to support the holistic development of all language learners—and, in particular, working-class folks of color— as they become competent multilingual speakers. We devise classroom activities and use textbooks and other original didactic materials that meet our participants’ needs and that represent the linguistic and racial/ethnic diversity of the Spanish- and Arabic-speaking worlds.
