The Embedded Racism of Language Access Barriers
6:00pm - 7:30pm
People of color who have Limited English Proficiency (LEP) face compounded barriers to accessing human health services and the legal system. Anti-discrimination laws aim to remedy those barriers, by requiring meaningful language access to government-funded programs and services. But do these laws do enough to ensure equal access for Vermont's LEP communities?
Join the South Royalton Legal Clinic at Vermont Law School as we consider these important language access issues in Vermont.
