The Case of Maria Luis (Language Access) Handout [pdf]

This PowerPoint explains what federal federal language access laws require of programs receiving federal financial assistance
(e.g. courts, child welfare, police, prosecutors, advocates, legal services). It also identifies pivotal points where lack of language access can negatively impact immigrant victims and their children and teaches what steps you can take in your agency and in your collaborative relationships to improve language access for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.
