GCC | Linguistic Justice Practice in Community College & Beyond Conference in partnership with 3CSN and Las Positas College

Friday, April 28, 2023`9:00 am - 4:30 pm

For the second year in a row, we’re calling out “standard English” as the marker of intelligence and academic success.

Join us for Linguistic Justice Practice in Community College and Beyond: A One-Day Online Conference, hosted by Glendale Community College in partnership with Las Positas College and 3CSN, on Friday, April 28, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PST.

This FREE conference will feature keynotes and workshops from April Baker-Bell,
whose extraordinary research demonstrates the power and effectiveness of linguistic justice in the classroom, and Vershawn Ashanti Young, whose groundbreaking argument for “students’ rights to their language habits and own Englishes” has empowered instructors and programs to shift their approach to critical writing. Their work expands our understanding of what makes good writing in our multi-ethnic, polyvocal America and how that should inform our campuses and disciplines. 

The conference will bring together folks from community colleges and beyond with varying levels of expertise and practice to exchange ideas, approaches, and tools to broaden the use of language/linguistic equity strategies in our institutions, from the classroom to the hallways! This year’s conference will also include students because this work cannot, and should not, be done without their voices, their experience, their expertise.
