LSA Renews Its Legislative Campaign for Native American Language Revitalization
Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 11:51am
Legislation is currently pending in the U.S. Congress that would reauthorize and/or appropriate funds for various federal programs to support Native American language revitalization efforts in current and future fiscal year(s):
- The Documenting Endangered Languages (DEL) Program
- The Native American Languages Preservation and Maintenance (P&M) grant program
- The Esther Martinez Initiative (EMI) grant program
- Sec. 6133 of Title VI of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) grant program
We encourage linguists to contact their members of Congress in support of these issues. The LSA has partnered with the National Humanities Alliance to host this action alert you can use to contact your member of Congress directly. Comprehensive information on all of the programs mentioned above may be found here.
