As the Language Enterprise engages with the Commission on Languages of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, state teacher organizations need to ensure that they are ready to present themselves to the broader public and policy makers as essential components of responsible 21st century world citizenship. The language industry occupies a central place in the world economy; addressing global geopolitics, demographic change, and emerging global challenges such as climate change requires linguistic and cultural human capital. This presentation discusses the state of language in the US in light of the upcoming Commission, and provides concrete steps for MaFLA leaders and members to take to ensure that the they have a voice in policy decisions at the local and national level.
