Patty Adams is a cis queer white woman who has been working at the intersections of social movement and healing justice for more than 20 years. Patty was privileged to live in Central America for more than five years, learning Spanish as a second language while working in support of human rights, international solidarity and collective liberation in El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Since then, she has been a freelance interpreter and a bilingual facilitator, in addition to working as a therapist, yoga teacher, and healing justice facilitator. As a co-founder of tilde Language Justice Cooperative, Patty is thrilled at the opportunity to live more fully into her anti-oppression values including anti-racism, anti-patriarchy, and anti-capitalism.
Susan C. Greenblatt had been interpreting for years before she discovered her inner introvert and added translation to her activities and now does both. A northerner by birth, she lived in El Salvador for 17 years, returning to the United States in 2010 to find her home in North Carolina. In addition to being a tilde Language Justice Cooperative co-founder, she is an American Translators Association Certified Translator (Spanish to English), a CERTIFIED HEALTHCARE INTERPRETERTM, and a member of CATI- the Carolina Association of Translators and Interpreters. She still has a lot to learn, for example, having just tried pawpaws for the first time this year.
