JLSP is committed to understand, learn from, and enable change from our sub-disciplinary perspective. To this end, editors invite submissions that highlight how LSP approaches can reveal ways that racism, social justice, and social change appear in everyday language and communication and submissions that illustrate ways LSP approaches can be used to address and, most importantly, remedy these social problems. How do communities discuss, define, or ask for social change? How is language symbolically impacted in these processes as a tool to uphold structural racism or to promote social justice?
