Enforcing Language-Access Rights
with Tere Ramos and Joann Lee
Federally funded programs are everywhere—state court systems, housing agencies, schools, police departments, and hospitals. And according to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, those programs must ensure language access for those who use them. What does that mean, and how can language-access rights be enforced?
In our June 2018 episode of the Advocacy Exchange, our monthly conversation with advocates advancing change, we talked with Tere Ramos of Ramos Law LLC and Joann Lee of the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles about the basics of enforcing language-access rights.
