Travel to Asheville, North Carolina to a Language Justice Curriculum meet up where we will be meeting with LGBTQ, young people, first and second generation immigrants, DACAmented and undocumented in hopes of bringing more of these folks into language justice work. We are six women of color, with the majority being mothers, so we need to take into account a car rental and travel expenses in order for us to get to Asheville safely. A lot of us in this new formation are new to this work and need to have access to training in order to further language justice work in the South, specifically in the Metro-Atlanta area. We want this to grow in the future to include other QTPOC people and languages but we understand that we need to have a strong foundation to move forward. We will be meeting language justice veterans and we hope to learn from them to get this crew going in Atlanta.
Funding will go to support Nuestra Voz’s leading of Durham, NC’s first Latinx Pride.
