Can You Lose a Language You Never Knew?
Growing up in a multicultural community makes some wonder if they may have missed out on something. How important is learning one's heritage language - the language of one's parents or grandparents - to one's social identity?

Moderated by Yazmin Gonzalez, Assistant Director of the Caltech Center for Inclusion & Diversity (CCID). We encourage you to read the article that inspired the session.
