Session II of the series will focus on language (spoken or sign) as a crucial component of any agency's effort seeking to improve the life, safety and well-being of Limited English Proficient (LEP), as well as Deaf and Hard of Hearing (D/d/HoH) victims of domestic violence/sexual assault (DV/SA) and their families. Individuals are more likely to seek help when those services are offered in their primary language.

This training is designed for service providers to learn about equitable communication when serving and engaging with individuals who are LEP or D/d/HoH with the support of an interpreter.
