In our fifth and final GALA Special Session, we’ll turn the spotlight on humanitarian organizations that leverage languages to conduct their mission-driven work. In times of crisis – and really any time – supporting a cause you care about delivers clear benefit to the recipient. But abundant research tells us that the giver of support benefits as well: to help yourself, start by helping others. In this virtual meet-up, we’ll hear from four organizations doing amazing work during this global health crisis (and year-round as well). Join us to hear about their initiatives and to learn how you can get involved using your unique talents.
