“Equality before the law in a true democracy is a matter of right. It cannot be a matter of charity or of favor or of grace or of discretion.”
Because of language barriers, Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals are often denied equal services in courts, schools, medical and social services, city and state government programs, elections and voting places and more. The Florida Language Access Coalition (FLAC) supports the laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of national origin because of language barriers.
Our mission is to take active steps, through networking and administrative and legal advocacy, to encourage recipients of federal assistance to comply with the legal obligations to provide qualified interpretation and translation services.
Members of this coalition should be willing to actively pursue or support language access actions.
