The LSA Committee on Endangered Languages and their Preservation
(CELP) is initiating a letter-writing campaign to President Obama urging
him to sign an executive order on Native American language
revitalization. Last April the LSA passed a resolution urging President
Obama to sign this executive order (http://www.lsadc.org/info/lsa-res-
native-american.cfm). If signed by President Obama, agencies of the
U.S. government would be directed to ensure that their policies,
procedures, and functions support community-based language
revitalization.

For more information, please visit the CELP website: www.lsacelp.org.

For instructions on how to become involved with the campaign, please
visit www.lsacelp.org/take-action/.

Yours truly,

Carol Genetti
Chair
LSA Committee on Endangered Languages and their Preservation

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Language Documentation
