Our Language for Social Justice Program was established in the spring of 2016 in New York City as a grassroots alternative to formal language instruction serving queer BIPOC, Spanish and Arabic bilinguals (“heritage speakers”), community organizers, political activists, and community-based organizations. We offer multiple levels of both virtual and in-person Spanish and Arabic classes and language services such as interpretation, translation, and Language Justice trainings.
We are deeply committed to anti-capitalist, popular education. All our classes are available on a sliding scale, and we offer additional flexible payment plans. Our Spanish language curriculum is centered around the lived experiences of working class people of Indigenous and African descent on our continent. Our Arabic language curriculum offers an anti-colonial and anti-imperialist alternative to institutional language learning.
