Does your agency have a legal obligation to provide interpretation or translation services to the people that you serve? Do language barriers prevent your clients from accessing critical information and services such as the legal system, emergency medical care, schools, firefighters or police? This Webinar will explain the laws that entitle limited- and non-English speakers to interpreters and that legally obligate organizations to provide individuals with language access. Learn how to ensure that your clients’ language access rights are fulfilled and how to develop an effective language access strategy for your agency.
