Equal Access Advocacy Project

Language Services will be working with victim’s service agencies statewide to create practical, affordable language access plans that address the needs of crime victims with limited English proficiency (LEP), visual impairments, and/or members of the deaf and hard of hearing community.

By partnering with agencies who provide direct services to crime victims (including but not limited to: law enforcement agencies, victims’ advocates, crisis centers, and medical providers), we can identify the factors that hinder communication and create customized language access plans to improve the services provided to people who find themselves in vulnerable situations and empower these individuals to seek justice and ultimately receive the care and support that they deserve.

This program will address Title VI compliance for all participating agencies by providing documents that lay out how to create a comprehensive language access plan for your organization.
