This Second National Conference will seek to further the aims of the
Heritage Languages Initiative, a national effort to develop the
non-English language resources that exist in our communities. It will
bring together heritage language community and school leaders,
representatives from pre-K-12 schools and colleges and universities,
world-renowned researchers, and federal and state policymakers. The
goals of the Heritage Languages Initiative and this conference are to
continue to make manifest the personal, economic, and social benefits
to our nation of preserving and developing the languages spoken by
those living in this country; to build a national dialogue on this
topic; and to develop an action agenda for the next several years.
