Achieving Language Justice for Immigrant Communities

As many as 40 percent of immigrants in the U.S. speak a language other than English or Spanish, and asylum seekers arriving to the U.S. in the past year spoke at least 40 different languages, including a variety of Indigenous languages. Due to a lack of access to in-language information, asylum seekers face barriers to applying for asylum and new arrivals experience challenges accessing services. Join this session to engage in a conversation about how philanthropy can support language justice and cultural competency that meets the needs of diverse immigrant and refugee populations.
