Weaving Language Access into Local Projects: A Guide for Cities & Towns @ Zoom (Virtual)
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. We are excited to announce that Massachusetts State Senator Sal DiDomenico will be joining us as Keynote Speaker for this event!

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.
