Come participate in an interactive discussion with Professors Kent Glenzer, Renee Jourdenais, and Netta Avineri about how language(s) can be meaningfully used in advocacy + how advocacy can be effectively used for language(s). The speakers will discuss experiences with advocacy on Capitol Hill (focused on world languages, study abroad, biliteracy, and Indigenous languages), in Monterey and the international development industrial complex, and with the media and professional organizations (sports team mascot names, bilingual education, Census categories, immigration discourses). Online/in-person language/advocacy opportunities and resources will be shared with participants as well. Refreshments provided by the Kathryn Wasserman Davis Collaborative in Conflict Transformation.   Zoom link:….
