About The LIAA
In 2020, Language Immersion Advocacy Association was formed as part of a National Parent Leadership Training Institute community project by Natori Green, a parent of a language immersion program student. The creation of this association was out of a desire to form a community that is going through similar educational experiences, share our love for languages, cultures, and advocacy.
We envision LIAA serving as an advocacy support network ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion are upheld for all.
Our mission is to collaboratively realize diversity, equity, and inclusion in educational environments while strengthening relationships between enrolled families, educators, elected officials, and attorneys through advocacy efforts and outings.
LIAA will serve as an advocacy support network for enrolled families and partner with educators, attorneys, elected officials, and corporate & community organizations to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion are upheld while providing fun language immersion outings, legal referrals, resources, and funding to families.
