Se Ve Se Escucha

“Language justice is about interpretation and translation, but it’s also about building meaningful relationships to organize and transform our communities. Se Ve Se Escucha is a podcast about language justice in its many different forms: as cultural organizing, self-determination, racial justice and honoring languages in all the ways they are spoken. The Center for Participatory Change has brought you workshops, training videos, webinars, and a teaching curriculum, and is now excited to bring you a brand new podcast. Join Ada and Andrea, along with special guests from the US and global South, as they discuss what it means to be seen and heard.”

I have enjoyed the first few episodes!

Allied Media Conference Report

As I announced in May, the Asheville Community Media Collective had the opportunity to attend the Allied Media Conference in Detroit in June as a delegation. It was an incredible experience on many levels. Click here to read our report about AMC on the JMPRO TV website, with links to photos and video.
