Accent Bias and Discrimination in the United States

October 22, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT Free

Registration Deadline: THU. 10/22/20

Teachers of adult ESL learners often hear stories of learners trying out their new English skills in the community, and being ignored or rebuffed because of their accent. In this workshop, learn about accent bias research, the politics of accent in the United States, and the ways that accent bias can result in discrimination for non-native speakers of English. Participants will role play ways to interrupt accent bias and advocate for English language learners in their communities.
