Language Advocacy Day 2018

Event Overview

Join JNCL-NCLIS and fellow language advocates from every intersection of the Language Enterprise for its annual Language Advocacy Day, to be held on February 15-16, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill! World language educators PreK-20, researchers, analysts, translators, interpreters, localizers, business owners, and representatives of leading professional and scholarly associations will participate in a two day event to advocate to the Congress and Executive Branch for increased support for language programs and activities across the federal government. Participants will learn about the federal programs that impact the Language Enterprise, the role advocacy can play in advancing collective policy priorities, and, most importantly, how to be a successful advocate for world languages!

A preliminary agenda will be available in late October. For a comprehensive overview of the event, take a look at the Conference Report from Language Advocacy Day 2017!
