Government Offices / Departments

CLS provides information and advice to people with limited English proficiency (LEP) to help them get the services and benefits they need from government offices/departments and government-funded organizations.  “Limited English proficiency” means a limited ability to speak, read, write, or understand English.

CLS also advocates on behalf of people who have been denied equal access to services or benefits because of their limited English proficiency.  CLS has successfully challenged or is currently working on challenging the practices of a variety of government or government-funded organizations when they have not taken reasonable steps to ensure meaningful access to LEP persons.
