languageIs the City doing its job to implement language access?

Last year in August 2013, community residents were successful in urging the City Council to pass a City-wide Language Access Policy that increased and improved translation and interpretation services for residents in Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog.  Come to this important hearing and let the City know how it is doing in making City Services Language Accessible.
