Why become a TLAN member?
The TLA Network is a gathering place, a healing ground, a place of greater vision and wider perspective that supports individuals and organizations in promoting all forms of the spoken, written and sung word as a tool for personal and community transformation.
Our goal is to connect to each other and support the development of language used for liberation, growth, and celebration.
