2019Building Inclusive Communities through Language Access LILAC Conference

What can you do to make a difference during these challenging times?
Please join us and learn more about local, state and even federal efforts to improve language access and inclusion and to advance justice for immigrants and people with disabilities. Presenters will discuss best practices, legal requirements, local initiatives and personal challenges. Gain a better understanding of why access to competent interpretation and translation services is critical to building trust, inclusion, empowerment and safety in our communities. Learn how to improve your program or to advocate for more equitable treatment. Let's connect and protect! We will also address timely topics such as immigrant concerns about accessing benefits and working to protect communities faced with ICE enforcement. We look forward to this opportunity to share our work with one another and to build new partnerships!
