Jen Hofer is a translator, poet, interpreter, and activist who advocates for language justice and creative experimentation with Antena collective. Her cutting-edge approaches build advocacy, inclusiveness, and community.

“Language justice affirms that everyone has the right to speak in the language(s) in which we feel most comfortable, to understand and be understood. It gives a framework and tools for creating spaces where no language dominates others. Language experimentation is an elastic, exploratory, poetically energized approach to language that resists injustice.” — Jen Hofer
