“Is Your Organization Fed-Ready?: Making Sure Your Language Offerings Meet Title VI – With the U.S. Department of Justice”  takes place Thursday, December 6th in Raleigh, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Registration at 8:30 a.m.)


At this event, two lawyers from the Federal Coordination and Compliance Section of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice will lead an interactive presentation to help programs assure they are meeting the law.


Non-profit & Government agencies receiving federal funding must be in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which requires providing services to people with limited English proficiency.


Participants will receive helpful guidance and learn about Title VI provisions that prohibit discrimination based on race, color, and national origin – including limited English proficiency (LEP) – by programs that receive federal funding, and how these protections apply to state courts and agencies, local law enforcement, and many social service programs.
