WHAT IS LANGUAGE JUSTICE?

Language Justice refers to a person’s fundamental right to transmit and receive information in the

language they feel more comfortable speaking in a given context. This ensures that their voice is heard and understood, and that they can fully participate and lead spaces they are involved in.
