Christian communicators also campaign on linguistic diversity

The World Association of Christian Communicators (WACC) has also been supporting campaigns on issues of linguistic diversity as you can read here.
This quote from novelist Elias Canetti ends of the article,
"There is no such thing as an ugly language. Today I hear every language as if it were the only one, and when I hear of one that is dying, it overwhelms me as though it were the death of the earth.’"
The World Association for Christian Communication "promotes communication for social change. It believes that communication is a basic human right that defines people's common humanity, strengthens cultures, enables participation, creates community, and challenges tyranny and oppression."
Giving people the possiblity to learn and speak their mother tongue is a key part of communication for social change.
