Language Justice Toolkit

Category: 
Prevention Strategy Type: 

The Language Justice Toolkit is a resource for organizers, popular educators, community leaders and activists, and anyone who is committed to building movements where people can communicate across languages. It features a collection of specific, practical strategies for organizations and individuals who are committed to building powerful multilingual spaces in their own workplaces and communities.

Language justice is about building and sustaining multilingual spaces in our organizations and social movements so that everyone’s voice can be heard both as an individual and as part of a diversity of communities and cultures. This toolkit seeks to promote constant learning and improvement in the complex intersection of community organizing and language justice. It includes an overview of key concerns around interpretation and translation, event planning tips, guidance for building an organizational commitment to language justice, and more.

Communities Creating Healthy Environments (CCHE) hopes that you will use the toolkit – in whole or in part – for whatever your own next steps might be in building spaces for language justice. The toolkit is available to download in both English and Spanish.

For many of us, the collective trauma of COVID-19 and racial injustice, including the white supremacist, anti-Black murders in Buffalo on May 14th, has greatly impacted our mental health and wellness. Our collective grief, pain, and anger can feel at times like too much to bear. But we know that just as all forms of violence are interconnected, so too must be our response to it. This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights the role of community connection in promoting mental well-being. Resources feature strategies for trauma-informed community building, community care, and healing justice.
