Bonswa Tout Moun

We’re so excited to welcome you to the Jamii community! (In Swahili, the word "Jamii" can be translated as "community"). ICYMI, we’re a Black-owned, Black-lesbian-led multilingual communications team... (go ‘head and google it...there ain’t another one).

Meet the Squad
AT LEAST 350 LANGUAGES ARE SPOKEN IN U.S. HOMES AND IT TAKES 21 LANGUAGES
TO REACH 90% OF THE WORLD’S ONLINE AUDIENCE.

In Swahili, the word "Jamii" can be translated as "community."

In this community, we are fiercely pro-Black, pro-LGBTQ+ and value justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. Our work empowers others to create impactful multilingual spaces in areas that have often operated using one dominant language.

Our north star is simple. We leverage the power of language to help dope AF leaders, freedom fighters, and lifelong learners like you, expand your reach—and create change!

Mission

Our mission is to challenge the "one-language-fits-all" communication approach. If you’re a leader in an organization (social justice, education, workplace, and more) or a lifelong learner that values diversity, equity, and inclusion, community building and engagement are top priorities!

A multilingual space improves access, promotes inclusive community engagement—and increases your reach all while creating a welcoming experience for everyone.

Community

We help organizations create high-impact inclusive spaces based on principles of language justice and multilingual community building.

A central focus of our work includes support for written translations, live interpretation, language learning, and more. 
In this house, we speak over 100 languages including Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, English (incl. AAVE/BVE), and American Sign Language!

Impact

We are an impact-driven organization, and we’re about that life! We believe ALL Black Lives Matter, pro-LGBTQ+, and we’re here to help you create multilingual spaces to dismantle oppressive, racist, patriarchal systems EVERYWHERE. Everybody can get this language justice!

We can help you leverage many languages to mobilize GLOBAL social justice movements and dismantle destructive systems - EVERYWHERE!

And, yes...it's very possible to fcuk sh*t up with a smile on your face! Joy is powerful af!
