What is Language Justice?
Language Justice is an evolving framework based on the notion of respecting every individual's fundamental language rights—to be able to communicate, understand, and be understood in the language in which they prefer and feel most articulate and powerful. Language Justice allows us to disrupt privilege and colonization, challenging English dominance and Western-centered knowledge, communication, and leadership.

Language Justice ensures that everyone’s voices are heard and included in the process of community change, and it is a critical element of movements for social justice.
