"Securing the Future of Language Access in Louisiana" 

The Louisiana Language Access Coalition (LLAC) of New Orleans began as an organization formed as a response to many concerns identified at the Latino Forum of New Orleans, after Hurricane Katrina in 2006.  The coalition was formed to bring together community members of the New Orleans Metro area from the Hispanic and Spanish speaking, Vietnamese and Vietnamese speaking and Brazilian and Portuguese speaking people to address language access issues in public policy, public agencies, community organizations, public services for the Limited English Proficient populations.  LLAC has focused in the areas of health care, criminal and civil justice and education as these areas affect Limited English Proficient populations in service delivery and rights as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

This conference has three tracks – Justice, Education and Healthcare. Each track will provide specialties and dedicated or specific topics for advocates, community members, service & healthcare providers, educators, administrators, policy makers and interpreters/translators.
