Antena is a language justice and language experimentation collaborative, focusing on writing, art- and book-making, translating, interpreting, and language justice. Antena explores how critical views on language can help us to reimagine and rearticulate the worlds we inhabit. Antena was co-founded in 2010 by Jen Hofer and John Pluecker.

Antena Locals in Los Ángeles & Houston
At a local level in Houston and in Los Angeles, Antena works through sister organizations to promote language justice, by working with organizations, communities and individuals to create dynamic, well-functioning multilingual spaces for small and large groups of people to foster open communication and attentive listening across languages and cultures. We primarily work with Spanish and English but have experience coordinating more diverse language combinations. In 2014, Antena Los Ángeles was founded as an Antena sister organization; currently, Jen Hofer, José Eduardo Sánchez, Betty Marín and Ana Paula Noguez Mercado make up the group. Antena Los Ángeles is specifically focused on building multilingual spaces locally in Southern California. In 2015, Antena Houston was launched to do the same in the Bayou City; currently, it is comprised of Marianela Acuña-Arreaza, Silvia Carolina Chicas and John Pluecker.
