On March 27-29, 2009, Highlander will hold its fifteenth “Interpreting for Social Justice” workshop at its Workshop Center in New Market, TN.

The workshop is designed for bilingual social justice activists who would like to learn more about interpreting and translating in a social justice context to build alliances and empower immigrant communities.

Sessions will include: interpreter role and ethics, interpretation modes, use of interpreting equipment, the impact of language barriers in social justice movement building, and how to create a multilingual space. Participants will engage in hands-on interpretation throughout the workshop.

The 3-day workshop is provided at no charge, and includes room and board. We have limited scholarships available to assist with travel expenses. Child-care is available.
