Words about Weeds with Just Language

I fortuitously got mixed up with this group called Just Language. Christopher Widmaier, Danielle Bunch, Lisa Fink and Celeste Williams interrogate our language around invasive species. Join in the dialogue and effort to make our conservation language more inclusive and purge terms like “invasive” and “alien” that have racist, prejudiced and xenophobic implications.
