Language access rights include the rights of individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP) to receive meaningful access to services at any agency or organization that receives federal funding. Providing language access is not only victim-centered and critical to saving lives, but it is also mandated through Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, the American with Disabilities act (for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing), and federal grant requirements. Has your agency developed and implemented a language access plan to ensure meaningful access to everyone in your community? Are there assessment and protocols in place to ensure that qualified interpreters and translators can be contacted? This webinar will explain federal requirements for language access and how to address challenges in implementing language access. Legal aid professionals, advocates, lawyers, and individuals working in the criminal justice field are encouraged to attend. Registration closes March 20, 2019.
