Reaching communities and creating content that matters means speaking to audiences in their own languages.  How do you create the skills and resources to do that?  What are the lessons you can learn from organizations that have committed to creating non-English and multilingual programs?   We’ll talk with community media projects that do this work, and get examples of successful programs that you can apply to your community.
