Center Deputy Director Laura Abel to Speak on Language Access in the NY Courts at Long Island Language Advocates Coalition Conference

On November 9, 2012, the Long Island Language Advocates Coalition (LILAC) will hold its first conference, “Everyone’s Talking About It:  Raising Awareness About Language Access for a Better Long Island.”  At the conference, National Center for Access to Justice Deputy Director Laura Abel will participate in a panel on “Justice in the Courts.”  Laura will speak about the steps the NY courts have taken to try to ensure language access, obstacles that limited English proficient court users face, and ways to improve language access to the courts.

LILAC describes itself as “a coalition of individuals and organizations based on Long Island who are concerned about the unequal access to programs, such as health care, law enforcement, social services and justice through the courts, by persons with limited English proficiency.”

The conference will be held at Touro Law School, in Central Islip, Long Island.
