Language & Friendship’s values are at the heart of our mission. As such, we cannot remain silent in light of recent events. Language & Friendship unequivocally condemns racism and practices that perpetuate racism, and we believe that Black lives matter.
L&F has, since our founding moments, valued knowledge of other languages and cultures, an eagerness to improve communication skills, and a curiosity for learning. By encouraging growth and curiosity through hosting and travel, we help others develop an awareness of our roles as world citizens and move in the direction of a more peaceful world. We believe that our work directly aligns with creating a more equitable world. We also believe that we can and must do more.
As we continue our mission to promote language learning, travel, and cross-cultural learning, we are dedicated to actions that build our skills in anti-racism. L&F is committed to continued learning and examining our practices and policies as well as developing initiatives to further support our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students, teachers, and families.
