In May, JNCL-NCLIS circulated a call for endorsements for the creation of Native American Language Resource Center. Endorse now to support the inclusion of this program in the next version of the CARES Act.

The Center would promote best practices in Native American language education; provide outreach to students and families; acquisition of distance learning technologies and training for parents, students, teachers and learning support staff; compile digital libraries and curate other online resources in target Native American languages; develop distance learning curricula appropriate for Preschool to PhD levels, pedagogical training for teachers, and other efforts necessary to continue Native American language acquisition among American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian communities.

The Joint National Committee for Languages and the National Council for Languages and International Studies (JNCL-NCLIS) is deeply troubled by the continuance of Presidential Proclamation 10014, now restricting the issuance of essential nonimmigrant visas. The restrictions placed on H-1B and select J-1 visa programs specifically, will have a profoundly negative impact on language and immersion programs, hindering educational opportunities for children across the U.S. and further damaging the United States economy by stunting progress in critical areas such as education and national security.  

JNCL-NCLIS is taking action to support our members and protect the Language Enterprise. Your organization can help by endorsing below. As an endorser, your organization's name will be added to the list of supporters to be sent to the Administration to show the strong network of support for the J-1 and H-1B visa programs and to advocate for an exemption for language educators. You may preview the letter in the next section.   
Additionally, JNCL-NCLIS will be collecting impact data from language programs and will be posting an action alert for advocates to send a letter to their representatives. Be sure to subscribe to our NewsBrief for updates regarding these efforts.
