Feb 28 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for the launch of MAPC’s Access Language Guide for Municipalities, a tool to support establishing your Language Access practices. Learn about:

  • Developing an understanding of the needs of your linguistic communities and how to respond to them,
  • First steps you can take towards establishing language access in your community,
  • The intersection of Language & Disability Access,
  • How to staff for Language Access, and
  • Language Access and Events, and so much more!

This Guide will help support you in taking your language access work beyond providing interpretation and translation services within your community to:

  • Developing trust with people who speak different languages,
  • Creating opportunities to celebrate people’s cultures,
  • Investing in building the skills of community members.
