As a purpose-driven social enterprise, Jamii helps organizations create impactful multilingual spaces based on principles of language justice and multilingual community building. We do this by supporting organizations working in social justice movements for LGBTQIA+ and immigrant rights, racial, economic and environmental justice, anti-violence, gender and educational equity, healthcare, and more!
We're a people-first, mission-second, and profit-third kind of organization. A central focus of our work includes promoting language learning in Black-centered spaces. We also prioritize bridging language barriers between Black US-born folx, Afro-Latines, Africans, Afro-Caribbeans, and other people of African descent via our flagship program, Language & Diaspora.
Our big vision is to create a multilingual, transnational community of Black, Pan-African and pro-Black people unified for collective liberation.
