Interested in gaining interpretation skills AND learning about interpreting for social justice? One of our natural resources is that many of us are multilingual and have been interpreting for friends, family, neighbors and coworkers.

gain greater skills in interpretation
learning about language justice strategies
better understand how to build more multilingual spaces
share knowledge about health, social and community resources
share resources on translating health, sexuality and gender issues.
What are the next steps?
After filling out the application, we will call you for a follow-up conversation.
