11-06-17 Webinar: Project CLIMB-Interpreters in Legal Settings

PATHWAYS TO COMMUNICATION EQUITY IN LEGAL SETTINGS

Monday, November 6, 2017 | 6-7:30pm Mountain time

Project CLIMB has been busy this year! Join us as we share our plans to increase the number and quality of interpreters of color, Deaf interpreters, and Coda interpreters for work in the legal specialty. We will share the research based background and foundation of the project and explore the current state of interpreting in the legal specialty.

Are you interested in furthering your training to the legal specialty? Are you interested in what Deaf people are experiencing when they interact with the legal system? Are you an interpreter of color, a Deaf interpreter, &/or a Coda interpreter?

If you said YES to any of these questions, this webinar is for you!

SLS COVID-19 Response:

We here at SLS highly value communication access. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected all of our lives. We are responding to these changes by maximizing safety while still prioritizing effective communication. We are happy to announce that SLS has adopted Virtual Video Interpreting (VVI) services. VVI services are available anywhere there is internet access, and in any setting where an interpreter is needed, such as school, court, hospital, doctor’s office, etc.


To all in our communities, we wish you to stay at home whenever possible, stay healthy, and stay safe! While we are still offering in-person interpreters as a last resort at this time, we want to partner with you in adhering to social distancing, and other suggested safe work practices. In this way we can all limit the risk to ourselves, to those in our households, and to those we work with. It is our sincere hope that we can successfully navigate this crisis together.
