League of Women
Voters of Gwinnett County present a discourse on “The Unifying Power of Language”, a discussion, followed by a Q and
A on how a dominant language in use influences economic, social and political
power. Languages have the potential to create and transform our position as citizens
within a given society. There are over 119 languages spoken in Gwinnett County
and within this backdrop of cultural richness and diversity, English remains
the language of power. Please join us at a General Members meeting on
Saturday, September 14 from 10:00am to
11:30am to listen, share your thoughts and receive additional information on available
language resources within the County. Meeting is open to the public.
