This three-part webinar series will engage participants in institutional-wide evaluation and self-reflection related to understanding what it means to provide meaningful language access; to explore the concepts of language as cultural identity; language justice, within the context of a culturally responsive approach to service provision; and to collaborate with technical assistance providers to develop an effective language access plan that meets organizational needs.
Session III of the series will engage participants in a process of critical thinking and planning that will support organizations/agencies in developing an effective language access plan. In order to carry out effective safety planning and provide critical information to assist ALL survivors in making informed choices, it is imperative to ensure meaningful access to services and available options for survivors with limited English proficiency. Under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, all organizations that receive federal funding must take reasonable steps to ensure meaningful access to individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). Join us as we discuss concrete steps for developing an effective language access plan.
