Description of webinar:

Effective communication with limited English proficient (LEP) survivors requires that programs federally conducted and/or government funded have language assistance services in place. This webinar will explain Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 obligations of recipients of federal funding, including legal services and victim assistance programs. Faculty will provide information and resources on how to develop a language access plan within your program and how to use U.S. Census and local demographic data to assess the number or proportion of LEP persons from each language group in your service area. Building upon this information, the webinar will discuss language access requirements for courts, law enforcement, health care, and benefits providers and best practices for language access advocacy for LEP clients with these agencies.

Webinar materials will include links to practice tools, statutes, government policies and regulations, and training materials, to better assist you in your work with LEP survivors. This is an interactive webinar in which attendees will be encouraged to participate and ask questions.

Closed Captioning is Available.
