This session will engage participants in a process of critical thinking and planning that will support organizations/agencies in developing an effective language access plan. In order to carry out effective safety planning, and provide critical information to assist ALL survivors in making informed choices, it is imperative to ensure meaningful access to services and available options for survivors with limited English proficiency. Under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, all organizations that receive federal funding must
take reasonable steps to ensure meaningful access to individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). Join us as we discuss concrete steps for developing an effective language
access plan.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Identify the information needed to develop and implement a comprehensive language access plan.
  • Examine the tools and resources available to support the development of an effective language access plan.
