The National Native Language Revitalization Summit will be held again this year in the US.
Coordinated by the Cultural Survival and the National Alliance to Save Native Languages, the Summit is a gathering of language rights’ advocates in Washington, DC, to speak with members of the US Congress to make the case for funding language revitalization.
In particular, organizers are seeking people who live in districts of Congress members on the Appropriations Committees, responsible for discretionary spending. See “2011 National Native Language Revitalization Summit” for a list of the states.
The event will be held June 22. There is no cost to join. A group discount on accommodations is available for those registering by June 10.
