Expanding services to all victims: Language Access Planning and Implementation

Language is a crucial component of any agency's effort seeking to improve the life, safety, and well-being of all victims and survivors of violence. Following this workshop, participants will be able to: articulate the significance of language in their work; recognize the ethical and legal mandates supporting meaningful and equitable access; implement robust language access plans that expand services to all victims; and demonstrate best practices for working with interpreters/ translators, including for the creation of multilingual spaces.
