We are advocates for plain language who have been active in building the plain language movement for nearly 25 years.
We have set October 13 as International Plain Language Day. This annual event celebrates the work that is being done around the globe to bring clear communications to everyone. We decided to launch this event after seeing the great success experienced in building the LinkedIn Group Plain Language Advocates.
2011 was the first IPLDay and it was enjoyed by many around the world. You can see what happened last year by visiting our page at Facebook.com/InternationalPlainLanguageDay.
This year we will add an online component, which we will organize, to the local events.
In 2012 we are going to use visual media – YouTube and SlideShare – to share ideas, tips, and activities so we can all learn and advance this important movement.
