ACTIVITIES & PROJECTS.
We see ourselves as a community of forward-thinking organizations and individuals in the non-profit, public and private sectors, driven by the desire to make a positive impact by advocating for access to information and services in languages people understand and promoting the understanding of the role languages have in economic recovery, education and mental and seniors' health.
We see the plurality of languages as a tool for creating a more equitable and inclusive society. We are interested in creating and negotiating strategic partnerships serving local and global audiences and supporting sector organizations in the pursuit of their vision of ensuring appropriate access and comprehension.
Our objective is to inform, connect and help with increasing visibility for our shared language rights activism through all relevant platforms, offline and online. With this work, we hope, we can create lasting change in the world.
We want to break through the noise and gain attention and traction, and for this, we see a team-based approach as the only way to make it happen. We need you! Our coalition is structurally loose and envisions a team of people with complementary skills and capabilities across a range of categories. Join us!
In turbulent times such as these, we all can do more to support and empower the communities we live in by joining together, sharing opinions and stories or monitoring the media to find and share reliable sources of common-sense policy solutions. A strong community means having a consistent voice as well as a safe place for holding such conversations. Join us!
We want to inform, educate and share findings about how languages improve earning, learning and health at any age in life, and how equitable access to info and services will build a more equitable Canada in the post -COVID economy recovery process.
Our knowledge management is about creating a "community of practice", consisting of members pursuing collective social action across official boundaries which, in turn, creates community.
We are aiming to document the process and create practical tools to help our communities and other communities advocate for languages better.
Advocacy is a marathon race and a core competency of any non-profit. The ongoing effort to engage representatives, policymakers, the community, funders and other stakeholders includes education, promotion and trust building for particular legislative changes to take place.
