Why are we doing this?
Bottomline: The liberation of ALL Black people EVERYWHERE will require more than one language. PERIODT!
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
The #TranslateTheMovement campaign was created by Jamii Linguists, a 100% Black-lesbian-owned social enterprise dedicated to helping people create change - in any language necessary! We are not a non-profit. We are a people-first, mission-second, profit-third kind of organization. This campaign is part of our mission to shift the one-language-fits-all approach to building movements for social justice while centering the needs of people of African descent. These funds will allow us to provide freedom fighters with free and “pay-what-you-can” interpreting, translation, and other language services to support their events, programs, services, or organizing campaigns.
Who can apply to get support?
Any Black-led non-profit initiative or campaign designed to promote racial and economic justice for Black people are encouraged to apply. The first round of applications will open after receiving a total of $25,000 in donations. Services rendered are based on available funding and approved applications.
How Funds Will Be Distributed?
All money raised by this effort will go directly to support Black-led initiatives, pay Black linguists, and build Language & Diaspora’s capacity to provide more resources for Black linguists (and language learners) who actively promote Black liberation. Services and resources will be distributed on the basis of need and availability of funds.
