Language Liberation

Language liberation is an essential tool in the effort to eliminate other oppressions (racism, classism, genocide, sexism, young people’s oppression, and so on). This is because language has been used to hold in place the power and structure of the dominant groups and the privileges of their status quo. Language liberation is a “key tool” for transforming an oppressive situation into a fair one, as it can guarantee the space, time, visibility, advocacy, and voice that have been taken away from oppressed groups.
