  • language justice volunteers

    BASTA Language Justice Initiative

    We work with linguistically diverse tenants and want to be able to communicate with everyone.  We have a commitment to language justice and strive to provide interpretation at every meeting in the languages of all participants.  This can get expensive, though, so to make this sustainable, we need volunteers to help with translation and interpretation.



    Assistance is needed in translating flyers, educational materials and media projects, interpreting at tenant meetings, and helping with BASTA outreach activities.


    Volunteers will be contacted based on need.  Currently, we need support in Pashto, Farsi, Arabic and Vietnamese.  We sincerely appreciate all offers of assistance.



    Please only submit responses for languages that you are fluent/proficient in.


BASTA is a non-profit project dedicated to helping Austin renters work together to improve the conditions of their homes and communities.
